The De Doctrina Christiana ("On Christian Teaching") is one of Augustine's most important works on the classical tradition. Undertaken at the same time as the Confessions, it sheds light on the development of Augustine's thought, especially in the areas of ethics, hermeneutics, and sign-theory. This completely new translation gives a close but updated representation of Augustine's thought and expression, while a succinct introduction and select bibliography present the insights of recent research.

R. P. H. Green is Professor of Humanity (Latin) in the Dept. of Classics, University of Glasgow. He has published books on Augustine's contemporaries Paulinus of Nola and Ausonius.Review:
"An interesting theoretical perspective giving balance to Augustine's more personal Confessions, and a welcome addition to the World's Classics series. On Christian Teaching is important in the history of biblical interpretation. Green's introduction (including a summary) and notes give a helpful background, including influences on St. Augustine's thought."--Stephen Bennett, Southern Nazarene University
