Augustine and his World introduces readers to the world of the early church and to Augustine of Hippo - one of the giants of Christianity. From his birth in North Africa and his days as a free-living young man, through his mid-life conversion to Christianity and career as bishop of Hippo, Augustine's story has inspired generations for over 1600 years. Augustine's greatness lay in his ability to relate the philosophies of Ancient Greece and Rome to the precepts of the Christian faith. He also saved the Church itself from disintegrating into rival factions, by forging sound doctrine in the fires of controversy. Not only did Augustine provide a basis for doctrinal unity, but he presented the Church with a vision for its role in the world. Finally, he broke new ground in personal spirituality. He probed the depths and recesses of his own heart and mind to discern the influence of God in his life, and so discovered lessons and insights for every human being. This new account of his life will be of interest to a wide readership.
