Augustine of Hippo is a giant in the history of Christian thought, commended by St Jerome for having virtually 're-founded the old faith'. He was a philosopher, theologian, preacher, interpreter of scripture, monk and bishop. Augustine dominated medieval theology, strongly influenced the debates of the Reformation and continues to shape Christian thought today.
This book is intended for those who want a comprehensive introduction to Augustine's life and thought, and provides a clear and rounded account of his teachings and influence.
