Publisher's Summary

Nothing except the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a greater miracle or wonder in human history. God becoming flesh in human history is the greatest marvel. Avatar is what this is called in Hindu religious tradition. Jesus of Nazareth was foretold in the Torah and the Prophets centuries before his appearance and he was proved to be real and not a pretender due to his death and Resurrection. The early church grappled with all of this intellectually. Many heresies were confronted, answered, and dismissed. Throughout the 2000 plus years of church history, many of the early church heresies have reappeared over and over again. Whether you are Catholic or Protestant the answers are from the Word of God.

Great book, difficult narration

What did you like best about this story?

This was written by bySt. Athanasius (296–373) to counter the Arian heresy which claimed that Christ was just another creature not true God, and thus no incarnation. Athanasius eloquently but briefly goes through arguments for the proof and necessity and fittingness of the incarnation. He argues that there is no creature which Christ could have been, prophet, magician, ghost, demon,l angel, etc. He discussed Christ's power over nature & authority over moral law. He talks about the fittingness of the crucifixion compared to any other type of death. Though he discuss it he could go more in depth into the strongest argument: the necessity of the incarnation for overcoming sin, no creature could over come the broken relationship between God and man left by sin and death except God Himself.

I couldn't get through it

What would have made On the Incarnation of the Word of God better?

The reader sounds like a robot. The text uses archaic words. It is monotonous. I struggled to try to understand. While it may be good theology, I found it very hard to follow.

narrator is a monotone

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The problem is not the content, but the narrator. I ordered the book for Kindle.
This is a dense book, and is probably one best read, not listened to.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator reads in a monotone, with metronomic rhythm. It is hard to hear the punctuation, or to follow the thought.
This is a dense book, and possibly hard to follow with a great narrator. With Mr. Thompson,

Terrible Performance

How did the narrator detract from the book?

A classic piece of theology is rendered almost impossible to listen to, but an awful reader. Poor diction, no flow, and mispronounced words leaves this work extremely disappointing,
