Augustine is widely considered to be the most influential theologian in church history after the apostle Paul. Dramatically converted from a life of licentiousness to one of wholehearted devotion to Christ, the humble North African pastor quickly established himself as a leading figure within the ancient church. In Augustine on the Christian Life, historian Gerald Bray explores the rich spirituality of this extraordinary man, examining his historical context, approach to the Christian life, and work as a preacher and teacher of God's Word. Drawing on Augustine's many writings—including his classic spiritual autobiography, the Confessions—and focusing on Augustine's personal transformation and dependence on the the Word of God, Bray shows us how this ancient theologian can sharpen and encourage Christians today.
