"Begotten, Not Made": Prov. 8:22 in the Arian Controversy

When Paul said Christ is "our wisdom from God" (1 Cor. 1:30), he was expressing what is known as "Wisdom Christology," an area of biblical teaching much neglected in modern times. This e-book traces the understanding of Christ as God's wisdom, especially as it relates to Prov. 8:22, which speaks of the birth of wisdom at creation. Does this imply that Christ is a created being? The answer is no, and this e-book explains why.
