Product Description

Product Description

Augustine of Hippo (/ɒˈɡʌstɨn/;[1] Latin: Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis;)[2] (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430), Bishop of Hippo Regius, also known as Augustine, St. Augustine, or St. Austin[3] was a Romanized Berber philosopher and theologian.
Augustine, a Latin church father, is one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. He "established anew the ancient faith" (conditor antiquae rursum fidei), according to his contemporary, Jerome.[4] In his early years he was heavily influenced by Manichaeism and afterwards by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus,[5] but after his conversion and baptism (387), he developed his own approach to philosophy and theology accommodating a variety of methods and different perspectives.[6] He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom and framed the concepts of original sin and just war. When the Roman Empire in the West was starting to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Church as a spiritual City of God (in a book of the same name) distinct from the material Earthly City.[7] His thought profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. Augustine's City of God was closely identified with the church, and was the community which worshipped God.

HASH(0xabd2c7f8) out of 5 stars Great Work! Dec 25 2010

I found this book to be astounding in it's simplicity & depth. I see the doctrine of grace did not start with Luther or Calvin as so many heretics claim!

Augustine did a wonderful job at stating and explaining the mystery of God's grace.

HASH(0xab7460cc) out of 5 stars St. Augustine's hypothesis of God's sovereign grace and human kinds free will. Feb. 27 2013
By Frank Forthman Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
St. Augustine wrestles with the age old question of allowing for God's sovereign grace and human kind's free will. He incorporates the use of Old and New Testament scriptures as well as the Apocryphal writings to lament his hypothesis. Since the beginning of time human kind has struggled with personal will and the sovereignty of God. Augustine's work is a classic treasure and in spite of the difficulty of the question a very good read. I highly recommend it for the Protestant as well as the Catholic. I graduated from seminary over 20 years ago therefore having been out of academia for so long I like to occasionally pick up an ageless classic. It certainly was well worth the time.

HASH(0xabc37798) out of 5 stars On Grace and Free Will Jan. 6 2013
By George Krieger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found the logic straight forward and easy to follow. I did not expect that. The subject was well covered but yet today, about 1600 years later, some still have difficulty with it.
