On the Incarnation of the Word of God By Athanasius of Alexandria
Paperback: $7.03

Athanasius (c.296 – 373), the twentieth bishop of Alexandria, Egypt stood contra mundum ("against the world") in defenCe of the biblical doctrine of Christ. He opposed Arianism when... More > it seemed all the world would follow Arius's heresy. In 325, Athanasius began his leading role against the Arians as his bishop's assistant during the First Council of Nicaea, convened to address the Arian position that the Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth, is of a distinct substance from the Father.

History of the Arians By Athanasius of Alexandria
eBook (ePub): $4.92
Arianism is the theological teaching attributed to Arius (ca. AD 250–336), a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt, concerning the relationship of God to the Son of God (Jesus of Nazareth).... More > Arius asserted that the Son of God was a subordinate entity to God the Father. Deemed a heretic by the Ecumenical First Council of Nicaea of 325, Arius was later exonerated in 335 at the regional First Synod of Tyre,[1] and then, after his death, pronounced a heretic again at the Ecumenical First Council of Constantinople of 381. The Roman Emperors Constantius II (337–361) and Valens (364–378) were Arians or Semi-Arians. The Arian concept of Christ is that the Son of God did not always exist, but was created by—and is therefore distinct from—God the Father. This belief is grounded in the Gospel of John passage “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I." (verse 14:28)< Less
