This chapter outlines the theology of salvation of Athanasius, noting that Athanasius believed that though man is fully dependent on grace, this grace is received by directing the mind toward God. As Yocum explains, Athanasius believed that the primary purpose of God becoming man in Christ was to do away with death and give way to life through the resurrection for those who are in Christ.
