Augustine (354-430) had a profound impact on the development of the
Christian Church, sparking controversy and influencing the ideas of
theologians for over fifteen centuries. His words are still
frequently quoted in devotions today and his key themes retain a
striking contemporary relevance--what is the place of the Church in
the world? What is the relation between nature and grace? In
Augustine of Hippo, the late Henry Chadwick--a renowned authority
on Augustine--describes with clarity and warmth the intellectual
development of this key Father of the Church. In his
characteristically rigorous yet sympathetic style, Chadwick traces
Augustine's intellectual journey from schoolboy and student to
Bishop and champion of Christendom in a period of intense political
upheaval, providing valuable insight into the progression of
Augustine's ideas. With a foreword reflecting on Chadwick's
distinctive approach to Augustine by Peter Brown, and a further
reading list on Augustine compiled by Gillian Clark, this volume is
both an essential assessment of Augustine and a final tribute to
one of the great church historians of the twentieth century.
