About the Book
Athenagoras of Athens was a Christian writer who lived in the Roman empire from approximately 133 to 190 AD. He was well-versed in Greek philosophy and may have been a Platonist philosopher prior to his conversion to the Christian faith.
This edition in the St. Polycarp Church Fathers Series presents Athenagoras' two extant works: Embassy for the Christians and On the Resurrection of the Dead. Within these two treatises, Athenagoras provides a well-reasoned defense of the Christian faith and the doctrine of the resurrection.
