Abstract:

The Great Athanasius is an introductory survey of the life and work of the most dynamic pastor-theologian of the fourth century. From his birth and early years in Alexandria to the ""Golden Decade, "" the book charts the life and work of Athanasius through a close study of his main writings and other important works. Central to his story is the ""Arian controversy, "" the Council of Nicea, and the subsequent difficulties that emerged in building a consensus around the ""very God, very Man"" affirmation of the Nicene Creed. The eventual triumph of the theology of the Nicene Creed was largely due.
