Product Description

Augustine's 10 homilies on 1 John are among his most influential. Here he develops the concept of love, exploring its meaning and implications with unusual profundity, passion, and analytical rigor. Too, he believed the Donatist breakaway factions of his own day to be not dissimilar to those schisms combated by John. 160 pages, softcover. New City.

Publisher's Description

Saint Augustines ten homilies on the First Epistle of John are among his greatest and most influential works. John and Augustine both develop the same central theme love --and in these homilies Augustine uses Johns epistle as a point of departure for exploring the meaning and implications of love with his customary profundity, passion and analytic rigor. As with John, a context of dissension and conflict within the Christian community (the Donatist breakaway from Catholic unity), gives his preaching a tone of urgency and poignancy. Anyone who reads these homilies, universally viewed as classics, cannot fail to be moved and challenged both intellectually and emotionally.
