5.0 out of 5 stars A book to add to your patristic library 2 April 2013
By Alvin Kimel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read "On the Incarnation" over thirty years ago and have re-read it once or twice since then. It is a patristic classic. No other Church Father so comprehensively presents the gospel of Christ with such brevity, simplicity and profundity as does St Athanasius in this slim work. I recently decided that it was time to read it yet again. When I discovered that Fr John Behr had recently translated "On the Incarnation," I was keen to add it to my library.

Behr's translation is readable and accessible. Not knowing patristic Greek, I cannot testify to its accuracy; but given Behr's accomplishments as a patristic scholar, I am confident that it is probably not only exceptionally accurate but more accurate than the translation it replaces in the Popular Patristics Series. Behr also includes a fine introduction to the work, which readers will find very helpful.

Have you read any of the Church Fathers? If you have not, then begin with "On the Incarnation." Here you will learn how the Eastern Church understands original sin (namely, death and corruption) and how God redeems and heals humanity through the Incarnation of his only begotten Son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I expected and more! 25 Oct. 2012
By A customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received "On the Incarnation" today in the mail, before it's estimated delivery date. Pages 11-49 are taken up by the preface and introduction, and the whole book is only around 170-180 pages. The Greek original is on the left side and it's English translation is on the right. The font for both is small, but perfectly legible. It measures out to 7" by 5" and is just over half an inch thick. Good writing gets straight to the point. All in all a great buy.
