About the Author
Augustine, the man with upturned eye, with pen in the left hand, and a burning heart in the right (as he is usually represented), is a philosophical and theological genius of the first order, towering like a pyramid above his age, and looking down commandingly upon succeeding centuries. 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. He was a Christian philosopher and a philosophical theologian to the full.

5.0 out of 5 stars The content, superb... 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I come from a generation who 'learned/were taught'; from books so when I got into IT in the 1980s, I bought copious technical books and was so grateful when Amazon joined the market and pushed the price of these books down. It took me a time to consider the world of e-books but almost by accident, I bought a 'technical title' and realised that being able to run a kindle version on another screen or PC whilst working on the actual software on another, was a really big plus, I became a 'convert' !

At the moment I am researching early Christian philosophy and Augustine of Hippo is a really important source in this regard so his complete works for this little money in an electronic format is just stunning for my current purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ding the publisher: this title won't fly 22 Sep 2013
By christopher - Published on Amazon.com
The e-publishers seem to have taken this: The Works of Saint Augustine, added this: St. Augustine of Hippo: Our Lord's Sermon on the Mount According to Matthew & The Harmony of the Gospels (admittedly a valuable addition), and lowered the price. So far so good. But why why why call it the Complete Works? One can only dream that someday someone will make a Kindle version of the following very interesting works (a partial list):
1. De Ordine, De Beata Vita and Contra Academicos- three dialogues from the time of A's conversion, available here: Writings of Saint Augustine, Volume 1 (Fathers of the Church)
2. On True Religion and On the Teacher, included in Augustine: Earlier Writings (Library of Christian Classics)
3. The Retractions: A's own account of everything he wrote:Fathers of the Church: Saint Augustine : The Retractions
4. Against Julian, the longest (and much mis-characterized) anti-Pelagian work: Against Julian (The Fathers of the Church, Vol. 35)
In short, a fine compendium with an absurdly pretentious title. One star penalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lifetime of reading in one "book" 26 April 2012
By M. Akers - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is why I love my Kindle. I have 46 wonderful books all in one file and it might just take me the rest of my life to get through them. But how much fun that will be! I've started on his "Confessions" and am already fascinated. I can hardly wait for the other 45...

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good read 1 Jun 2014
By Doris E. Reidel - Published on Amazon.com

easy to read. Not a "religious" book. Explains thoughts on many misconceptions of the early church. I would recommend it to anyone interested in early Catholicism.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Works of Saint Augustine 17 May 2014
By JP Blickenstaff - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Have had Confessions on my reading list for years, finally got it started. It is interesting as it is a foundational document for Christian Doctrine. Plus it is a personal recollection of Augustine's life in the late 300's AD. I always find it fascinating how much life is the same mo matter when and how much is changed. This translation is easy reading.
