St. Alexander was a member of the generation who experienced the shift from the persecution of the Church into an acceptable and promoted religion within the Roman Empire. As the leader of the Church in Alexandria he was charged with addressing some of the early controversies in the Church. He appears to have been able to navigate controversy with clarity and generosity. His letters seem to draw from a rich well of spirituality and love of God. Consider this rich description of Jesus, “He is the Mediator between God and man; He is the resurrection and the salvation of all; He is the Guide of the erring, the Shepherd of men who have been set free, the life of the dead, the charioteer of the cherubim, the standard-bearer of the angels, and the King of kings.”
