On The Incarnation by St.. Athanasius
On The Incarnation by St.. Athanasius

5.0 out of 5 stars Great original text, 10 May 2013
As with St. Anselm's 'Cur Deus Homo' this is another easily readable original text forming another view of Christology. Surprisingly easy to read it is another of the main texts for anyone studying Christology or wanting an attempted explanation of Christ as part of the trinity and his divine/human nature.
Cur Deus Homo: "Why God Became Man" by St. Anselm of Canterbury
Cur Deus Homo: "Why God Became Man" by St. Anselm of Canterbury
Thought this would be a difficult read as it is one of the main texts for studying Christology and is very old. Very surprised at how easy it was to read as it gives Anselm's ideas on Christology as a conversation between himself and a student called Boso. It tries to answer the big questions in the form of apologetic writing which is where most students of Christology will come from. Great for those studying theology or those who are simply confused by the many theories about who Christ was as God-Man and part of the trinity. Just remember that there are other theories e.g. Anselm's book 'About the incarnation' which is so cheap as a Kindle version.
Heresies and How to Avoid Them by Ben Quash

Deals with most of the 'isms' (Donatism, gnosticism etc..) and the councils that tried to explain these complex issues. It does this well. Gives a potted history of Christology and is very readable as it is written as a series of short sermons which tackle the subject of heresy (I did not know that even some heresies can be good!!) and gives a great guide for those who are studying Christology or are tackling the complex issues through house groups, cell groups or in sermons.
