Khaled Anatolios is Associate Professor of Historical Theology, at Weston Jesuit School of Theology, in Cambridge, MA. He is the author of Athanasius. The Coherence of his Thought (Routledge1998).
'Especially impressive in Anatolios's work is his explanation of the Athanasian perspective on sin as 'de-creation' and of the importance of stability in Athanasian soteriology ... worthwhile and recommended.' - Reviews in Religion and Theology'A worthwhile addition. Those who know nothing about Anthanasius ... will find a reliable guide to his life and thought. The expert too might profit from Dr Anatolios' balanced and sympathetic presentation of the theology. Both will value the well-chosen and extensive extracts ... Dr Anatalios brings a generally pleasing new style of appreciation to his subject.' - Theology
