Item Description...
Overview
Written between 413 and 426 A.D., The City of God is one of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, a book that is vital to the understanding of modern Western society. Augustine originally intended it to be an apology for Christianity against the accusation that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire. Indeed, Augustine produced a great amount of evidence to prove that paganism was responsible for this event. However, by the time the work was finished, the book had taken on a larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the conflict between good (the City of God) and evil (the Earthly City). Augustine foresees that, through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, while those of the Earthly City will suffer destruction.

More About Augustine & St.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Aurelius Augustinus (354-430), better known as Saint Augustine, was born to poor parents, Patricius and Monica, in the small town of Tagaste in Numidia, North Africa. Despite his mother's pious influence, Augustine embarked on several years of wild living when he began his education at the University of Carthage. During this time, he fathered a child and adopted the Manichean faith, a sect whose followers professed to have received from their founder a higher truth than from Christ. After years of seeking and eventual disillusionment with the Manichean ways, Augustine acknowledged Jesus as Lord during a dramatic garden conversion. He was baptized the following year and became an ascetic--studying the foundations of faith, writing (chiefly against his former sect), and conversing with a group of disciples, first at Rome and then in his native town. During a visit to Hippo near his hometown he entered the priesthood, and in 395 became Bishop of Hippo, an office he held until his death. He is known for his literary accomplishments, chiefly The City of God and The Confessions, as well as for his patient pastoral leadership in the Catholic Church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
THIS IS ONLY PART 1  Aug 1, 2009
I AM GLAD I WENT TO THE PRODUCER'S SITE "BLACKSTONE AUDIO". THIS IS 19 HOURS OF RECORDINGS, BUT IT IS ONLY 1/2 OF THE TWO PART SET. this site OFFERS THE SECOND PART, WHICH IS ALSO 19 HOURS OF RECORDINGS, AND IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS $ FOR SOME REASON. I AM INCLUDING THIS INFORMATION TO SAVE OTHER READERS THE EXPENSIVE OF EITHER HAVING TO PURCHASE THE SECOND PART, OR TO HAVE TO PAY THE RETURN POSTAGE BECAUSE OF AN INCOMPLETE SET.
