Eagle in Flight: The Life of Athanasius, the Apostle of the Trinity is the exciting and true story of St. Athanasius of Alexandria who saw almost all the bishops of the Church sign their names to false creeds, including Pope Liberius who signed under torture and later recanted. Falsely accused by his enemies of rape, murder, and treason, Athanasius, with the death penalty hanging over his head, fought to uphold the true faith as handed down from the apostles, while hiding out in abandoned cisterns, tombs, and the desert. This is a story of heroism and triumph presented in the form of a novel to make the events come alive for the reader. Athanasius has much to say to today's Church.
