So it is with this fine translation.” Andrew Louth, Fairacres Chronicle

- Commentaries on Psalms 121 to 150 by Saint Augustine. A translation for the 21st Century. Includes bibliographical references and indexes.

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.
- Commentaries on Psalms 99 to 120 by Saint Augustine. A translation for the 21st Century.
