"Rescues the eloquence and relevance of Saint Augustine for contemporary readers. This is a book for students, scholarsand any earnest seeker in search of a great companion."
James Carroll, author, Practicing Catholic and Constantine's Sword
"An important contribution…. Combines both the technical expertise of an Augustine scholar and the communication skills that make his work appealing to [non-scholarly] readers. One can only hope that this book is the first of many on Saint Augustine to flow from Dr. Kelley's pen."
Donald X. Burt, OSA, professor emeritus, Villanova University
“Becoming acquainted with Christianity necessarily entails encountering Saint Augustine. Joseph Kelley’s illuminating anthology is a compelling introduction to the ancient church’s most profound thinker.”
Professor Jane E. Merdinger, Augustinian Heritage Institute; author, Rome and the African Church in the Time of Augustine
