‘Love with skin on’ – Athanasius ‘On the Incarnation’

September 25, 2012 — Leave a comment

On the Incarnation of the Word was highly recommended by Christian apologist, C.S. Lewis, who in his great introduction suggested that contemporary Christian audiences could benefit from reading more ancient classics. Though Athanasius of Alexandria wrote this text in the 4th century, his writing is easy to follow and powerfully persuasive. It has been called one of the most foundational of all Christian texts ever written!

I read from this work in a sermon called Love with Skin On.  The text can be found on line, but here are two recommended editions:

The edition pictured here includes Lewis’ introduction and also a letter on the importance and use of the Psalms by Athanasius.

This Kindle edition (you don’t need a kindle device, just a Kindle APP on any device) may be the best $0.99 purchase you’ve made in long time!
