"This book provides ready access into and sure guidance through the marvelous, often convoluted, invariably rich world of Origen: the man, the ecclesiastical dynamics of his day, his extant works, the range of his theological explorations, his influence, and the controversies associated with him in life and in death. Practical recommendations for use and clear presentation of topics enable the reader, whether novice or specialist, to engage Origen in ways that address the reader's interest. A compelling look at the fearless theological vision of one who honored the teaching of the apostles and delighted in investigating its implications for all of life." REBECCA H. WEAVER, John Q. Dickinson Professor of Church History, Union Theological Seminary and the Presbyterian School of Christian Education

"McGuckin has grasped and encompassed the wider scope of Origen's vision and mission. He has moved beyond the polarities of churchman or theologian, mystic or philosopher, by creating a canvas large enough to embrace the competing interests and passions in Origen's life. McGuckin places Origen's writings squarely in the flow of his life, within the geography of his ecclesiastical relations and the ferment of regional controversies. What distinguishes this presentation of Origen is its liveliness. Origen simply walks off the page and into our contemporary world bringing with him his passion for building a Christian intellectual center to rival Athens and Alexandria." KAREN TORJESEN, Margo L. Goldsmith Professor of Women's Studies in Religion and Dean, School of Religion, Claremont Graduate University

"Those who invest themselves in reading this remarkable volume will receive competent, convenient guidance from experts into the life, mind, and world of Origen. Students making their first acquaintance with him will receive immediate orientation to the essentials. Those already established in Origen studies will find it a handy reference with articles that will expand their own understanding." D. JEFFREY BINGHAM, Chair and Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
