Product Description

This volume of The Library of Christian Classics contains Augustine's writings from the time of his conversion to Christianity in A.D. 386 until he became Bishop of Hippo in 395-396. Included are eight of the most important treatises from this period in which Augustine's Christian position was being formulated. The Editor has included a brief introduction and a review from Augustine for each work included. Augustine is unarguably one of the most influential figures in the history of the Christian church and the opportunity to read his works in English is remarkable. 413 Pages.

The Library of Christian Classics has long been acclaimed for its quality translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes. The series ensures that modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological works written before the end of the sixteenth century are available for scholars and students, allowing contemporary readers to mine the theological riches of the Christian church though the centuries.
