Item description for The Scandal of the Incarnation: Irenaeus Against the Heresies by Irenaeus, St Irenaeus of Lyons & Hans Urs Von Balthasar...

Saint Irenaeus was the first great Christian theologian. Born in Asia Minor in about 130 A.D., he became Bishop of Lyons and died as a martyr early in the third century. His main work, Adversus Haereses (Against the Heresies), is as relevant today as it was eighteen hundred years ago. It is a critique of Gnosticism, the `anti-body' heresy, which, far from dying out, continues to flourish as the main threat to the Christian faith in our own day. With serenity and good humor, Irenaeus unfolds the unity of God's purpose in creation and redemption, in Old and New Testaments. The flesh and blood which Gnosticism so despised has been assumed by God in the womb of the Virgin Mary, and glorified in the Resurrection and the Eucharist. In this book, quotations from Saint Irenaeus have been arranged thematically in order to show the unity of his Christian view of the world. The texts have been selected and are introduced by the late Hans Urs von Balthasar, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest Catholic theologians of this century. They are translated by John Saward.

Scandal of the Incarnation Irenaeus Against the Heresies  Apr 22, 2010
The book was excellent, just the way I expected. However, the delivery time from SmokyMtnBooks took about two weeks; the longest delivery time I've experienced since I started ordering from this site.
