Against the World: The Odyssey of AthanasiusISBN: 9780921100355
Against the World is a fictionalized profile of the life of Athanasius, who died in the year 373. Much of the material is culled from the writings of reliable church historians. Various segments, however, are the products of human imagination. For example, there are few details given us in the record of the business proceedings and vigorous debates that took place in the momentous Council of Nicea. The author has tried to set forth honestly the spirit and temper of that and other councils as well as the character and personality of the man who occupies the centerpiece, certainly one of the most redoubtable noblemen in the pantheon of Christian statesmen.
