    Story
    "Depth, Excellence, and Brevity Together"

    This is a book that nearly perfectly accomplishes its mission.

    It is written by an excellent scholar who understood Augustine and his times in depth and with genuine human and philosophical empathy. Given the vastness of Augustine's writing and influence, Chadwick is a wonderful guide to select the elements of Augustine's thought and context that are most illuminating and to bring them into interaction with each other. Chadwick is especially good in clarifying the philosophical journey of Augustine from his long formation in pagan and non-Christian contexts of thought through his conversion and to the reshaping of that formation as a Christian bishop. Chadwick knows that he cannot cover everything. He makes well thought out choices and writes with concise clarity.

    The book is beautifully read by Phil Holland.
