Book Description

16 Feb 2007 The Works of Saint Augustine, a Translation for the 21st Century: Part 1 - Books (Book 20)
Those who turn to spiritual classics for guidance and inspiration often find their style daunting. The original texts still have much to offer but their diction and idiom chosen for another era and audience pose an obstacle to many contemporary readers. Teresa of Avila's Way of Perfection for Ev ryone is the first in a series that aims to make some of the greatest Christian teachers accessible to all.The Way of Perfection was written in the sixteenth century as an introductory text on life and prayer for Teresa of Avila's sisters young Carmelita novices setting out on the contemplative path. This retelling of her classic in modern idiom makes the kernel of her teaching accessible to the many contemporary readers who feel called to a deeper more Godcentered life. Teresa an acknowledged expert sets out the principles and practice of the life of prayer that can speak to you as you journey with God in your own life.

4.0 out of 5 stars from City Press 3 Aug 2007
By S. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
This book is the most extensive attack on the Manichean religion that the early church produced. Since Augustine himself had been associated with Manicheanism for nearly a decade before his conversion, his writing displays an insider's knowledge of Manichean teaching. Written probably at the very end of the fourth century, the Answer responds to a certain Faustus, a Manichean bishop, who objects to the Old Testament and questions how Christians can claim it for themselves. Augustine cites Faustus' arguments at length, thus giving the reader a useful insight into the Manichean mentality. The Answer is valuable for its reasoned and still-relevant defense of Hebrew Scripture and of its patriarchs and prophets, and also for the opportunity that it gives Augustine to draw connections between the Old and the New Testaments and to show how, in Christian eyes, the latter is the fulfillment of the former.
