Editorial Reviews

Not only does he know the history and context, but Peter Barnes certainly knows the life of Athanasius. Writing in a lucid style, Barnes provides readers everything they need to know about this era of church history, and imparts a love for the man who defined it. Every page is soaked with historical and theological data, but more than that, every page drips with appreciation for Athanasius of Alexandria and why Orthodox Nicene faith is truly contra mundum.

-- Coleman M. Ford (Co–founder of the Center for Ancient Christian Studies, Adjunct Instructor of Church History, Boyce College, Louisville, Kentucky)

… an excellent introduction to the life and ministry of one of the greatest champions of truth in the history of the church, Athanasius of Alexandria. Along the way we learn of the Christ whose honour Athanasius sought to uphold above all else. It is a well informed and accessible account which will enable many to become familiar with a Christian disciple who sought to honour the incarnate Word above all else. Worth reading.

-- Mark D. Thompson (Principal, Moore Theological College, New South Wales, Australia)

It takes one to know one. With grace and precision, one of Australia’s ablest defenders of theological orthodoxy here expounds the salvation determining doctrines of one of the Church’s most stalwart champions of revealed truth. As well as informing the mind, Peter Barnes’s account of the times, thought and trials of Athanasius warms the affections and nerves the will.

-- Stuart Piggin (Conjoint Associate Professor of History, Macquarie University, Australia)

Athanasius, whose name means ‘immortal,’ lives on in this comprehensive and commendable biography. Barnes shows how the animated controversialist managed a full life, as a Nicene theologian, Alexandrian bishop, and five–time refugee. The influence of the patriarch persists through these informed pages.

-- Paul Hartog (Professor of Theology, Faith Baptist Theological Seminary, Ankeny, Iowa)
