Description

Little-known writings packed with spiritual insights is perhaps the best way to characterize Augustine’s commentaries on the Psalms. It is from a carefully chosen selection of these that the present book is made – a book to surprise and delight the seeker after genuine Christian spirituality.

Augustine lived at the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire in the West, when, as in our present day, many of the old certainties were challenged by events. A man of massive intellect and towering spirituality, he could yet voice the concerns and reply to the needs of the humblest of people. Despite the bad press he has had in recent times, which comes from the often distorted impact down the centuries of some aspects of his vast teaching, he has much to say to modern times that is both liberating and inspiring.

Edited by Oliver Davies, with a wonderfully meditative introduction by Angela Ashwin, and translated into lively and readable modern English by Adrian Roberts and Oliver Davies, this anthology has the power to lead us to the still waters of the beauty which is God himself.
