The book is the first monograph-length study of Augustine's Contra Adimantum and demonstrates that, despite previous neglect of the work by Patristic scholars, a full appreciation of Augustine's reaction to the Manichaesan exegesis of the Bible is essential in understanding the development of Augustine's early theology.
