Publisher's Summary

The City of God is one of the most important works of Christian history and philosophy ever written. The writings of St. Augustine are as intriguing to the casual reader as it is to Christian researchers. St. Augustine's work provides insight into Western thought and the development of Western civilizations. The City of God provides the reader with an artful contrast between earthy cities and those in heaven as a representation of the eternal struggle between good and evil. The City of God was originally penned in the early 5th century as a response to the prevalent belief that Christianity was to blame for the fall of Rome. St. Augustine is known as one of the most influential Fathers of the Catholic Church. Born November 13, 354, Augustine would eventually be recognized as a Saint by the Catholic Church, the Eastern Christian Church, and the Anglican Communion.

Wonderful Performance

Getting through this lengthy book was not as hard as I had originally envisioned because Augustine's City of God is a wonderful scholarly masterpiece comprised of philosophy, theology, and cultural examination. It is tragic, thought-provoking, and packed with wisdom. The narration by David McCallion was spectacular from start to finish and made the read go by much quicker than anticipated.

The City of God

Extensive detail and self examination of who God is or should be. The examination is tied closely with the Bible and the Christian God Yahweh, his son and the Holy Spirit. Heavy reading and deep thought is required by the reader.
