On the Incarnation , a new translation and introduction by John Behr, Preface by C.S. Lewis By any standard, this is a classic of Christian theology. Composed by St. Athanasius in the fourth century, it expounds with simplicity the theological vision defended at the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople: that the Son of God himself became "fully human, so that we might become god." Its influence on all Christian theology thereafter, East and West, ensures its place as one of the few "must read" books for all who want to know more about the Christian faith.

[This is for the Kindle edition.] Good read, but apparently never checked for spelling errors prior to publication (I just finished a quick once-through and caught nearly a dozen). The preface by C.S. Lewis is worth the cost of the book, for any Lewis fans. Actually, the prefatory material takes up more than the actual treatise, and it's all worth reading. Minus one star for poor spell checking, and one star for lacking page numbers in the Kindle edition. Otherwise 10 stars out of five.
Interesting arguments for Jesus' divinity. Not sure they'd fly as apologetics today, but as a sermon they work well. Of course, this work influenced pretty much everything after it, so don't take my superficial first impression as the last word - even I mean to re-read and cogitate for a while before making up my mind.
P.S. This particular edition has an introduction from C.S Lewis that is also well written and worth reading!
