In this book, Stephen Cooper provides an overview of the greatest theologian of the early church: Augustine of Hippo. Augustine has had a towering influence in the history of Christianity and his Confessions has long been regarded as one of Christianity's classic texts. Cooper introduces the life and thought of Augustine through discussing the Confessions and shows how many of Augustine's human struggles are still with us today. He also examines the theological views of Augustine that emerged through the important controversies of his times.

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

About the Author:

Stephen A. Cooper is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

From AudioFile:

Among the fathers of the early Christian church there are few who seem larger than life, Augustine being the exception. Cooper distills much of Augustine's two major works, CONFESSIONS and CITY OF GOD, to give us a biography of this saint, covering much of his pre-conversion stage. Simon Vance moves in and out of Augustine's voice effortlessly while giving us what could be a contemporary film, given the earthy subject matter and its timeless story of the struggle towards faith. True to its moniker, this entry in the Armchair series makes accessible the life and works of, arguably, the most influential Christian thinker of all.
