"This collection has been extremely well translated into English by Fr. Daly and to him a great debt of gratitude is due for having made available the thoughts of one of the greatest of ancient theologians as seen through the eyes of an almost equally prolific successor in the same central Christian enterprise." Heythrop Journal "A classically useful book, as fresh and vital as Origen himself... The thematic arrangement, with its pithy introductions and excellent selection, makes Origen easy to read, and clearly relevant to the human and religious project." Patristics "This book can be highly recommended to anyone who is interested in Origen and in a view of Christian life which stems from an ancient scholar who was first of all a devout Christian and who wished to be, in his own words, 'a man of the Church'. The experience will be a rewarding one, and the reader's appreciation of Origen should be enhanced." Theological Studies"
