    1) Introductory paragraph

    ---> The intro is your overall impression of the book and its author. The Ccel.org site provided a good synopsis for starters. It says (on page 2 of the PDF):

    "On the Incarnation of the Word" is a classic work of Orthodox theology written by noted bishop of Alexandria, St. Athanasius. In this apologetic treatise, St. Athanasius defends the incarnation of Christ against the derision of 4th century nonbelievers."

    Interestingly, even though this book was written so long ago in the Fourth Century, it is still useful today, and reads with great wisdom.
