Summary "The life and works of Augustine of Hippo (354-430) have shaped the development of the Christian Church, sparking controversy and influencing the ideas of theologians through subsequent centuries. Augustine's intellectual development is recounted with clarity and warmth in th is newly rediscovered biography by the acclaimed church historian, the late Henry Chadwick. Augustine's journey from schoolboy and student to Bishop and champion of Western Christendom in a period of intense political upheaval, is narrated in Chadwick's characteristically rigorous yet sympathetic style."--Jacket.
