Arius vs. Athanasius

In a rare presentation, Richard Rubenstein, author and professor of Conflict Resolution at George Mason University, addresses a conference of One God believers in Atlanta. Rubenstein brings exceptional insights into the great Christian conflicts that surrounded the “Arian” controversy and particularly the council of Nicea in 325 AD. His message important for everyone with an interest in church history, the development of post-biblical Christian orthodoxy and/or conflict resolution.

In addition to being a professor of Conflict Resolution and Public Affairs at George Mason University, where he specializes in religious conflict, Rubenstein is the author of When Jesus Became God, which is a well-written summary of one of the major religious controversies of the early Christian Church.
