Excellent study of Christ May 17, 2003
Athanasius, Gregory of Nazianzus, and Gregory of Nyssa are brillliant theologians of their time, and the comments and clarifications by the editor help to make their writings more comprehensible. This is a thorough study and analysis of Christ, probing the questions surrounding the Incarnation and refuting the heresies of that day and age.
