It is no secret that Aurelius Augustine was a stalwart of the Christian faith; a pagan turned Christ-follower; a man of the world turned to a man of the Word; a man controlled by sin to a man controlled by the Spirit. Gerald Bray offers up a thoughtful overview of Augustine of Hippo in his latest work.
Augustine on the Christian Life summarizes the life of the influential theologian and meticulously navigates his life from pagan to pastor. Bray’s work is historically sound and captures the essence of Augustine’s life and legacy.
Practical application is drawn from Augustine’s life which will surely be an encouragement to readers. Much can be learned from Augustine – lessons from his life in defiance of God before his conversion and lessons from his devotion to God.
