From the Publisher an opportunity to observe in action one of the foremost ancient students of the Bible using both Testaments to reflect on the doctrine of the Trinity. Philosophy and theology always with a close reliance on the Bible and a rootedness in God blend into a single enterprise.
What Father Hill has provided is a splendid translation, made from a trustworthy Latin text, of what is for some of us the foundation work of Christian theology. He has fitted out his translation, clearly the best of the four that have been made into English, with notes that go well beyond the perfunctory and a 38-page introduction that is a delight to read. Journal of Religion and Health Barry Ulanov Hill has recovered the De trinitate for Augustine: its dynamism, its intimacy are back; the voice, that of the author of The Confessions and the Sermons, is once again recognizable to English readers. Journal of Early Christian Studies John C. Cavadini University of Notre Dame The volumes on The Trinity and the Sermons already published have set a very high standard in accuracy and a lively, readable and idiomatic English style. They are a pleasure to read, instructive, and, with their introductions and notes, often illuminating. They will be useful to students, their teachers as well as a wider public. Robert A. Markus, Notre Dame University
