The Trinitarian Controversy // Translated by William G. Rusch.

Why read perplexing modern commentaries on primary sources that spends ten pages on one line when you can be perplexed by reading them yourself? It is better to dabble in the fount than the bubbling brook thousands of miles away. A few of  Arius, Athanasius, Gregory of Nazianus, and Augustine’s works pack this 180 page book. Read, get confused, read again, hopefully learn a little, read a third time, and be confused even more. That is the vicious cycle of studying the Church Fathers.
