Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
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.
