Saint Athanasius: The Father of Orthodoxy by Francis Alice Forbes – Free Catholic Audiobook

A short and rather old fashioned biography of a great saint. Don’t expect subtlety; it’s unapologetic hagiography. The saint is presented as a figure of pristine brilliance, courage and integrity and his persecutors as conniving villains. But to those who appreciate what was at stake in the controversy, Athanasius is indeed a God-sent hero. This is an informative, if quaint, introduction to a fascinating figure in history. (Summary by Pattymarie)
