A Perfect Introduction to Henry Chadwick and Augustine of Hippo
A wonderful book for anyone wishing to learn about the theology of Augustine and the excellent work of Henry Chadwick. Chadwick is a venerated figure in modern theology having held positions at Oxford and Cambridge and manages to explain Augustine's theology in a surprisingly easy to read manner. Chadwick also explains the complex influence of Greek philosophy, specifically Neoplatonism on Augustine's thought. Prior to Chadwick this was something that many theologians had downplayed for obvious reasons. This is a fascinating read and should inspire readers to learn more about Augustine and the Early Church in general. I would recommend moving on to Chadwick's The Early Church when you have completed this book.
