St. Augustine's 'City of God' #1 (De citate dei) By Apostle Arne Horn
Paperback: $24.57
Prints in 3-5 business days
Preface, explaining his design in undertaking this work. The glorious city of God is my theme in this work, which you, my dearest son Marcellinus, suggested, and which is due to you by my promise. I... More > have undertaken its defence against those who prefer their own gods to the Founder of this city, a city surpassingly glorious, whether we view it as it still lives by faith in this fleeting course of time, and sojourns as a stranger in the midst of the ungodly, or as it shall dwell in the fixed stability of its eternal seat, which it now with patience waits for, expecting until “righteousness shall return unto judgment,” and it obtain, by virtue of its excellence, final victory and perfect peace. A great work this, and an arduous; but God is my helper. For I am aware what ability is requisite to persuade the proud how great is the virtue of humility, which raises us, not by a quite human arrogance, but by a divine grace, above all earthly dignities that totter on this shifting scene.< Less
Be constant in prayer Saint Augustine on Prayer By Sr. Pascale-Dominique Nau & Saint Augustine
eBook (ePub): $9.04
Saint Augustine was a zealous pastor. He often talked about prayer, explaining what prayer is, what we should ask and hope for-both for ourselves and our loved ones-, and how God might answer.... More > Repeating the exhortation of St. Paul and of Christ himself to pray without ceasing, he emphasized the great need for a prayerful lifestyle that assures our stronghold in the intimacy with the Lord, a lifestyle that is both a gift and a testimony for those we meet in our daily lives.< Less
The Life and Influence of St. Jerome By Edward Cutts Augustin Largent
eBook (ePub): $18.95
JEROME, though one of the four "great" doctors of the Church, seems never to have been an object of any very tender personal devotion as other saints have been, his appeal being more... More > directly to the head than to the heart. His sanctity and austerity is of the kind that awes rather than attracts, and is provocative of admiration rather than of imitation. For this reason he has been looked at with cool, temperate eyes; and since, moreover, he has so fully written himself down for us, there is little difficulty in discerning the broad outlines of his personality. Presented in this work is an overview of his life, works, doctrine and respective contribution to Christianity. He is most notably remembered and regarded as the translator of the Scriptures in to Latin. Jerome indeed is one who like Augustine stands at the doorway from the Apostolic area and that of era of the Councils which shall impact and shape the Christian doctrine as we know it today.< Less
The Quotable Augustine: Distinctively Catholic Elements in His Theology By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Protestants (especially Reformed Protestants, or Calvinists) often assert that St. Augustine's views were closer to theirs than to the present-day Catholic Church. My aim is to systematically... More > document St. Augustine’s advocacy of positions that historic Protestantism has expressly rejected, and (conversely) detail his opposition to some doctrines or beliefs that it has (generally speaking) espoused. Quotations are drawn from 44 separate works of St. Augustine, arranged under 157 topics, and also arranged chronologically within topics, insofar as that can be determined. This helps to clarify any development in Augustine’s views. Editorial input is kept to an absolute minimum: confined to an occasional bracketed clarification (usually a contextual matter or reference) or briefly stated fact considered to be indispensable in understanding some aspect of the quotation. I'm delighted to pass along to readers a "capsulized version" of St. Augustine's wonderful and eloquent theological writing.< Less

More > not wealthy, they were highly respected in the city. His father was a man by the name of Patricius, and it is recorded that he was one of the curiales (leading members of a clan) of the city. Patricius was a pagan, though he converted to Christianity on his deathbed in accordance with his wife, Saint Monica’s, wishes. Augustine too would be greatly influenced by the Christian virtues of his mother. As a boy, Augustine received a Christian education, and was enrolled amongst the catechumens (young Christians preparing for confirmation).

Augustine and the Pelagian Controversy: The Doctrines and Theology of Pelagius in the Early Christian Church (Hardcover) By Benjamin B. Warfield

Prints in 3-5 business days
St. Augustine's role in the Pelagian controversy, wherein a popular theologian issued beliefs contrary to those of the Catholic order, is explained within. Pelagius was a popular figure in Rome and... More > wider Christendom; thought to have hailed from the British Isles, his multilingualism, learned stature and obvious ascetic leanings made him a well-recognized and appreciated Christian. Years of preaching in Rome in the 4th and 5th centuries affected Pelagius' views; in particular, he felt that those who pled their very humanity was the reason for their sins and wrongdoing were abominable. In his writings, little of which survive to the modern day, Pelagius offers an alternative theology based on readings of the New Testament. The Augustinian notion of original sin - that sin is inherited to all humanity since the fall of Adam and Eve - is rejected by Pelagius, who felt that individual humans have the capacity to shape their own spiritual destiny through both piety and moral living.< Less
