REMAINDER TITLE - ONLY WHILE STOCKS
This volume brings together three Augustine scholars of international reputation to present St. Augustine's highly influential Rule to a wide audience. This new translation and commentary offer a lucid approach to a complicated subject, on both the scholarly and the spiritual level.
"Gerald Bonner is a great interpreter of Augustine's religious life and views, and his essay situating these writings within the context of Augustine's life and works is clear and well-presented, and deftly summarizes the history of the research on the authenticity and the order of these works. The notes by Bonner and Sister Agatha Mary elucidate Augustine's thought, helpfully note allusions to Scripture, and draw the reader's attention to relevant secondary literature."—Augustine J. Curley
