Nicaea and the World
This book is the history of the controversy that arose in the 4th century over the beliefs of Arius, priest in Alexandria Egypt under Bishop Alexander. The bishop insisted that Christ was a begotten Son from eternity. His priest insisted that Christ could not be begotten "unless there was when he was not." Bishop Alexander called this heresy. 'Nicaea and the World' shows the state of the world and the church during these early centuries and how the controversy was resolved.
