Augustine

Major Writings

This stimulating and engaging work provides excerpts from Augustine's major works and unpacks them, revealing their importance and allowing a direct experience of the great luminary's teachings and thought. An indispensable aid for understanding Augustine and the early development of Christianity.

A preeminent Father of the church, Augustine continues to influence Western Christianity more than a millenium after his death. In this readable primer, Benedict Groeschel discusses three spiritual classics of this towering intellect, The Confessions, City of God, and The Trinity, and other relevant works in the context of Augustine's life.

The reader becomes acquainted with the important themes in Augustine's work and comes to know the convert, philosopher, psychologist, preacher, scripture scholar, historian, and theologian—the many facets of a brilliant mind and faithful spirit.
