- Augustine’s responses to conflicts within the North African church remain surprisingly relevant to contemporary crises in Catholicism. His writings contain his mature thought on the nature of the sacraments, the morality of the clergy, and the importance of mercy and charity in maintaining church unity.
- This volume contains The Sermon on the Mount (De sermone Domini in monte), Agreement Among the Evangelists (De consensu evangelistarum), Questions on the Gospels (Quaestiones evangeliorum), and Seventeen Questions on Matthew (Quaestiones XVII in Matthaeum). VIEW IN PAPERBACK EDITION
- Augustine undertook this greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The book in fact is an extended poetic, passionate and intimate prayer. Second Edition includes an annotated bibliography by William Harmless, SJ. VIEW IN PAPERBACK EDITION
- The present volume contains ninety-four letters, the last sixty-three of the previously known letters and the thirty-one more recently discovered and edited by Johannes Divjak in the final quarter of the last century. There are eighty-one letters of which Augustine is the author. Each letter is preceded by its own introduction in which the translator offers valuable information about the persons, content, and background pertinent to the letter.
- The sixty-two letters contained in this volume were written between 414 and 422 or 423, though a number of them are virtually impossible to date with any certainty. During these years Augustine became deeply involved in the controversy on grace with Pelagius and his ally, Caelestius, both of whom had passed through North Africa shortly after the fall of Rome.
