He had a mind uncommonly fertile and deep, bold and soaring; and with it, what is better, a heart full of Christian love and humility. He stands of right by the side of the greatest philosophers of antiquity and of modern times. We meet him alike on the broad highways and the narrow footpaths, on the giddy Alpine heights and in the awful depths of speculation, wherever philosophical thinkers before him or after him have trod. As a theologian he is facile princeps, at least surpassed by no church father, schoolman, or reformer. With royal munificence he scattered ideas in passing, which have set in mighty motion other lands and later times. He combined the creative power of Tertullian with the churchly spirit of Cyprian, the speculative intellect of the Greek church with the practical tact of the Latin.

    This is a review of only Augustine's Confessions, not the entire collected works. The Confessions were written about 15 years before The City of God. It is a far more interesting book. It still suffers from predestinarianism, misogyny,and class prejudices, but is a more humble volume, acknowledging more clearly his own sinfulness in his misuse of the women whom he bedded. Both works are in part a reaction to the Manichean heresy which tempted him for many years.

It is a far more interesting book. It still suffers from predestinarianism, misogyny,and class prejudices, but is a more humble volume, acknowledging more clearly his own sinfulness in his misuse of the women whom he bedded. Both works are in part a reaction to the Manichean heresy which tempted him for many years. Manichean were outright dualists who assumed the good things of our world were created by a good God and that an equal, evil entity created the bad. By the time of the Confessions, Augustine has repudiated this , but is now left with a dilemma. God has created everything and seen that it was good. Where does the evil come from. From those who rebelled against God, be they angels or men. But there capacity to commit evil is a gift from a good God. Moreover, an all-knowing God must know from creation which angels or men will rebel. I fear I am not fully competent to explain Augustine's resolution of these dilemmas. It involves hierarchical beliefs about angels and men, anout men and women, about reasonable men and "carnal" people. It is unsatisfactory. At one time he likens the trinity to men who can be, can know and can will, but he believes knowledge will lead to wisdom and, with God's helping grace, will, in the next life, lead us to see all clearly. It is a philosophy of man which exalts his own strengths and denigrates other human capacities. To Augustine, being made in the image of God means being able to reason and it is the reason which God must perfect in each of us. Yet Jesus tells us that the kingdom of God is made of the childlike. For Augustine, there is no longer need of hope in the next life, yet Paul tells us that hope (as wel as faith) endures and will never pass away. I write this review with trepidation because I know I can not do justice to Augustine, but I akso am convinced he is wrong on many, many things. Still I want to credit him with remarkable insights into time and eternity, into the primacy of grace, even into the mystery of the Trinity. Unlike The City of God, I do recommend this to anyone willing to wrestle with a profound thinker who has much to offer but who also can easily mislead because of the power of his persuaviseness . If I live long enough, I shall probably tackle this again, but it is a challenge.

    Ancient literatre can be hard at times. I have read both Confessions and City of God, and though insightful with some good points (and, frankly, some bad ones too), Augustine has a hard time getting to his points in a concise way, if i didnt know better, i would say he loved the sound of his own pen writing. I would recomment a good summary of these two books, if such a summary exists.

    For the sake of church history and history of the development of Christian theology and philosophy, this is a must-read. You can easily see how both Reformers and the Roman church lay claim to Augustine as His teachings are quite varied. God is so good to have placed Augustine at a point in history where he could be used to confront errors from the Donatists and from Peligius. Even though written hundreds of years ago, much of these writings are still relevant today.

God is so good to have placed Augustine at a point in history where he could be used to confront errors from the Donatists and from Peligius. Even though written hundreds of years ago, much of these writings are still relevant today. However, one must be careful to read with discernment so as to not get taken in by erroneous views on baptism and early forms of what would later become Roman Catholic dogma.
