I hope this isn't a loaded question, but I always wondered who is Origen? I've heard his name often but I've never actually bothered to look him up. Somebody told me he was a great influence in the church while others have told me he said a lot of things that the church rejects as heresies. Could someone help clear this up?
Thanks for your answer. Would you know of a good resource (book or internet) that examines the teachings of Origen through an orthodox point of view? Possibly one put out by the church.
The entire book is about Origen, hope that helps.
