Full Product Description

Athanasius, one of the most influential church fathers in history, records in his Life of Antony of Egypt the story of another extremely influential figure of early Christianity. In these pages we read of St. Antony's early life, his retreat into the desert and his famous spiritual battles. Albert Haase's work gives us access to a masterwork of spiritual formation, that we too might know the God of the universe as richly and deeply as Athanasius himself did.

Also included in this volume are a few lesser known pieces of Athanasius's writing: Letter to Ammoun, Letter to Dracontius and Festal Letters 39.

Athanasius by O.F.M. Albert Haase, Shane Claiborne was published by IVP (USA) in May 2012. The ISBN for Athanasius is 9780830835928.

"Taking one of the best--and also oldest--spiritual classics, Athanasius's The Life of Antony of Egypt, [Albert Haase] has made it accessible to us in this paraphrase. Lively, engaging and sometimes humorous, his new paraphrase of this very old work turns it from something alien into something inviting, convicting and relevant. His occasional call-out comments explain and clarify the document just when the reader needs it most. We owe Albert a debt of gratitude for doing such good work for the church."
