1 Review
A preeminent father of the Church, Augustine's towering intellect molded the thought of Western Christianity for a thousand years after his death. He wrote profusely, and among his many works considered here are three spiritual classics; The Confessions, City of God, and The Trinity. Here the reader meets Augustine the convert, the philosopher and psychologist, the preacher and Scripture scholar, the historian and theologian. Benedict Groeschel distills Augustine's many writings and presents the essence of the ideas within. Further he places the man and his writings in historical perspective. Augustine's corpus of writings continues to be of major importance in theology and philosophy, and an indispensible aid in understanding the early development of Christianity.
