Excerpt


For many, all theology subsequent to Augustine is a footnote. He is influential, even today, because of his doctrinal formulations, but even more important, Augustine is a stimulating thinker and constant inquirer. Starting with his philosophical interest in Platonism, which set the framework for his thinking, Eugene TeSelle examines the major themes of Augustine's thought following a more or less chronological order including human fulfillment, evil, creation, the human self, the church and its doctrines, the course of human history, and the relation of Christianity to political matters. Even those who think he was wrong in his conclusions can respect Augustine's willingness to confront problems and think through their implications.

Excerpt


Augustine (354-430) had a profound impact on the development of the Christian Church and Western Civilization. His thought still pervades our religious beliefs, civil institutions, and philosophical understanding. Indeed, next to Jesus, Plato and the Apostle Paul, no one has more shaped our world.

Nevertheless, as Henry Chadwick shows in Augustine of Hippo: A Life Augustine sparked controversy. Augustine's words are still frequently quoted in devotions today and his key themes retain a striking contemporary relevance--what is the place of the Church in the world? What is the relation between nature and grace?

Henry Chadwick--a renowned authority on Augustine--describes with clarity and warmth the importance of these questions for Augustine as well as his broader intellectual development. Characteristically rigorous yet sympathetic in style, Chadwick traces Augustine's intellectual journey from schoolboy and student to Bishop and champion of Christendom in a period of intense political upheaval, providing valuable insight into the progression of Augustine's ideas. With a foreword reflecting on Chadwick's distinctive approach to Augustine by Peter Brown, and a further reading list on Augustine compiled by Gillian Clark, this volume is both an essential assessment of Augustine and a final tribute to one of the great church historians of the twentieth century. A staple biography for all interested in the early church.

Excerpt


In this book, Stephen Cooper provides an overview of the greatest theologian of the early church: Augustine of Hippo. Augustine has had a towering influence in the history of Christianity and his Confessions has long been regarded as one of Christianity's classic texts. Cooper introduces the life and thought of Augustine through discussing the Confession and shows how many of Augustine's human struggles are still with us today. He also examines the theological views of Augustine that emerged through the important controversies of his times. By focusing on the Confession, Cooper takes us through Augustine's journey as we see him losing his way and then finding it again by the grace of God. Augustine shows us what it means to be from God, to be oriented to God, and then brought to God by God. The illustrations throughout the volume enhance this presentation and memorable convey the issues Augustine addresses.

Commenting on some of Augustine's writings, here Father Burt reflects on what Augustine said about the nature of the "self," obstacles standing in the way of discovery, and some of the facts one can learn from experience and faith about oneself.
