The Apostle From Africa
Full Product Description
All around the Mediterranean leading men hung on his words yet at times his errors were deplorable, even horrifying. Yet Augustine grew out of this as the man who has influenced the church more than any other extra-Biblical writer.
"After Jesus and Paul, Augustine of Hippo is the most influential figure in the history of Christianity."
Christian History magazine, One of the most remarkable things about Augustine's influence is the fact that it flows into radically opposing religious movements. He is cherished as one of the fathers of the Roman Catholic Church, and yet it was Augustine who gave us the Reformation - not only because Luther was an Augustinian monk, or that Calvin quoted Augustine more than any other theologian, but because the Reformation witnessed the ultimate triumph of Augustine's doctrine of grace.
David Bentley Taylor has managed to give us a thorough introduction to the man. 'Augustine entered both the Church and the world as a revolutionary force, and not merely created an epoch in the history of the Church, but . . . the whole development of Western life, in all its phases, was powerfully affected by his teaching.'
B B Warfield 'One of greatest fathers of the Catholic Church, yet it was Augustine who gave us the Reformation.' John Piper
