valuable study ... His work is based on a painstaking analysis of the texts, and is lucidly written. * Expository Times *
Peter Widdicombe has produced a clear and well argued study of the use of God's Fatherhood as a principle in early theological debate ... this is a useful and good book which can be thoroughly recommended. * Reviews in Religion and Theology *
The author must be thanked for his clarity of style and his determinism not to "wear his learning heavily" ... The work is well crafted, accurate and useful at the right level of study. * Theological Book Study *
It is a pleasure to welcome this book ... It is clearly and unfussily written; the argument is straightforward and the conclusions interesting ... It is to be hoped that this book will provide a much-needed account of certain basic themes in the thought of Origen and Athanasius. * The Heythrop Journal *
It is a tribute to the excellence of this book ... that the familiarity of the sources on which it is based does not detract from its interest or its value to scholars. Such a thorough investigation of the theologies of Origen and Athanasius and such a clear depiction of the continuities discernible in the Alexandrian tradition which connects these two theologians has not been available before ... This absorbing and profound monograph will certainly rank as a major and as an attractive contribution to the literature on the formative period of Trinitarian thought. * Journal of ncclesiastical History *
Widdicombe writes well, in a lucid, pleasant style, and displays a good grasp of the texts studied. His book provides a useful overview of certain aspects of the thought of Athanasius and others. * J. Kevin Coyle, Saint Paul University, Eglise et Theologie / 27, 1996 *
this is a very good book ... It is a good book because of its clear, sure-handed scholarship. * Church History, December 1996 *
thorough and honest interpretation of selected texts of Origen. ... This book is a readable study of a difficult topic. Widdicombe's principal contribution ... is his careful textual analysis. I found the Scripture index, the index of ancient authors and the general index very helpful. I highly recommend this book. * Toronto Journal of Theology, 13/1, 1997 *
This book has many strengths, especially its clear and thorough discussion of philosophical and theological issues in Origen and Athanasius...This book is a fine contribution to the history of ancient theology. * The Journal of Religion *
