Origen is a towering Christian figure notable for his 6-column parallel Bible, allegorical (yet historical) method of interpretation, defense of Christianity against the pagan philosopher Celsus, speculative views on theology, and intense devotion to Christ. Major scholars here explain his thought. 228 pages, softcover.
This book provides ready access into and sure guidance through the marvelous, often convoluted, invariably rich world of Origen: the man, the ecclesiastical dynamics of his day, his extant works, the range of his theological explorations, his influence, and the controversies associated with him in life and in death. Included are recommendations for use and clear presentation of topics which enable the reader, whether novice or specialist, to engage Origen in ways that address the reader's interest.
