In the second part of this series, Augustine switches his focus to a group that were also threatening the church of his day in that they believed that the church must be perfect and faultless in all... More > it does.

The Writings Against the Manichaeans and Against the Donatists: Part I - The Manichaeans By Aurelius Augustine
Paperback: $29.72
Prints in 3-5 business days
Before converting to Christianity, Augustine was at one time a member of a group called the Manichaeans and this collection of works are his attempt to combat the growing threat that this religion... More > caused to the rise and growth of the Christian church. The Manichaeans were a dualistic society that focused on the goodness of the spirit and the evil of the material. While basing their belief structure of Mesopotamian Gnosticism it is hard to say for certain that they were Gnostic themselves. Augustine shows sound arguments to counter the beliefs he reveals in this collection of writings even going so far as to have a verbal parley back and forth with a leading member of the religious movement Fortunatus.< Less

Mass Movements: Radical Catholic Reactionaries, the New Mass, and Ecumenism By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
This volume consists of essays on 1) the distinction between the extreme radical Catholic reactionaries and mainstream “traditionalists,” 2) the New (Pauline, Novus Ordo) Mass and its... More > liturgical abuses, and 3) genuine, orthodox (not silly liberal) ecumenism. Radical Catholic reactionaries have been misled by various errors of the nature of what is called "rigorism". This recurring problem throughout Church history is seen in groups such as the Donatists, Montanists, Jansenists, and the Old Catholics who left the Church after Vatican I (1870): an error of thinking and out-of-whack perspective; an inability or unwillingness to think with the Mind of the Church, and a lack of charity. I love traditional Catholic worship, and the Tridentine Latin Mass, and have much affinity with "traditionalists." That’s not what this book critiques. Rather, it criticizes fringe views that seek to “bash” the New Mass as profoundly “inauthentic” and inferior Catholic worship, and to dismiss Vatican II and true ecumenism.< Less
Homilies on the First Epistle of John By Augustine of Hippo
eBook (ePub): $4.92
The First Epistle of John has as its central theme what Augustine saw to be caritas (Christian love). For Augustine to preach on this topic was timely in Hippo, for the Donatist schism had divided... More > the Christian community. In his ten homilies on the First Epistle of John, Augustine develops an outline of his theology on love and explains its implications for the Mystical Body of Christ. He probably preached them between the years 407 and 409. He teaches that those who hate the members of Christ cannot truly love Christ - even if they profess otherwise, even if they were to lay down their lives for Him. These homilies were preached by Augustine to his local community in Hippo and, while often exhibiting great critical acumen, were not intended as models of Scriptural research. They are familiar talks, vivid in style. They are expressed in very simple language, and with the strongest love. In preaching these words to his local community in the cathedral at Hippo, Augustine here once again reveals ...< Less
