'… masterful study … Rist places [Augustine] firmly in the tradition of classical philosophy and uncovers the intellectual unease which made him a deep and original thinker.' John Marenbon, The Times
'… is likely to be reckoned by readers to rank as Rist's best book so far: the sheer magnitude of the subject and the contemporaneity of some the issues have evoked a book to match'. Henry Chadwick, The Times Literary Supplement
'Rist's study of Augustine is a stunning achievement … [His] exposition is simple, lucid, based on vast learning and has the sympathetic understanding required for true insight. What distinguishes his study from many others is his acute awaremeess of the problems, obscurities, unresolved tensions and incoherences in Augustine's thought'. R. A. Markus, Theology
This major work provides a detailed and accurate account of the character and effects of Augustine's thought as a whole. Augustine weighed some of the major themes of classical philosophy and ancient culture against the truth he found in the Bible and Catholic tradition, and reformulated these in Christian dress.See all Product Description
