"This is a good translation of a very great book. . . St. Athanasius stood contra mundum for the Trinitarian doctrine "whole and undefiled," when it looked as if all the civilized world was slipping back from Christianity into the religion of Arius—one of those "sensible," synthetic religions which are so strongly recommended today and which then, as now, included among their devotees many highly cultivated clergymen. It is the glory of St. Athanasius that he did not move with the times; it is his reward that he now remains when those times, as all times do, have moved away.
"When I first opened his De Incarnatione I soon discovered I was reading a masterpiece . . . For only a master mind could have written so deeply on a subject with such classical simplicity." —C. S. Lewis
