Item description for The City of God, Part 1 by St Augustine, Marcus Dods & Bernard Mayes...
Overview Written between 413 and 426 A.D., The City of God is one of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, a book that is vital to the understanding of modern Western society. Augustine originally intended it to be an apology for Christianity against the accusation that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire. Indeed, Augustine produced a great amount of evidence to prove that paganism was responsible for this event. However, by the time the work was finished, the book had taken on a larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the conflict between good (the City of God) and evil (the Earthly City). Augustine foresees that, through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, while those of the Earthly City will suffer destruction.

THIS IS ONLY PART 1 Aug 1, 2009
I AM GLAD I WENT TO THE PRODUCER'S SITE "BLACKSTONE AUDIO". THIS IS 19 HOURS OF RECORDINGS, BUT IT IS ONLY 1/2 OF THE TWO PART SET. this site OFFERS THE SECOND PART, WHICH IS ALSO 19 HOURS OF RECORDINGS, AND IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS $ FOR SOME REASON. I AM INCLUDING THIS INFORMATION TO SAVE OTHER READERS THE EXPENSIVE OF EITHER HAVING TO PURCHASE THE SECOND PART, OR TO HAVE TO PAY THE RETURN POSTAGE BECAUSE OF AN INCOMPLETE SET.
