About the author (1991)

Augustine was born in AD 354. He lived a wild, self-destructive life as a young man in Italy and was the subject of many prayers by his worried mother, Monica. After a life-changing conversion, he lived on to become a tremendous influence on Christian thinking. He died in AD 430.

Augustine of Hippo is one of the greatest thinkers and writers in the Western world. After he became Christian he was made bishop of Hippo in Africa where he was influential in civil and church affairs. His 113 books 200 letters and 500 sermons have left a lasting impact on Western philosophy and culture. His classic and bestselling works include the Confessions The Trinity The City of God and Teaching Christianity.
