Item description for Evil and the Augustinian Tradition by Charles T. Mathewes & Mathewes Charles T....

Recent scholarship has focused attention on the difficulties that evil, suffering, and tragic conflict present to religious belief and moral life. Thinkers have drawn upon many important historical figures, with one significant exception - Augustine. At the same time, there has been a renaissance of work on Augustine, but little discussion of either his work on evil or his influence on contemporary thought. This book fills these gaps. It explores the 'family biography' of the Augustinian tradition by looking at Augustine's work and its development in the writings of Hannah Arendt and Reinhold Niebuhr. Mathewes argues that the Augustinian tradition offers us a powerful, though commonly misconstrued, proposal for understanding and responding to evil's challenges. The book casts new light on Augustine, Niebuhr, and Arendt, as well as on the problem of evil, the nature of tradition, and the role of theological and ethical discourse in contemporary thought.

Reviews - What do customers think about Evil and the Augustinian Tradition?

Examening the dark absence  Nov 23, 2003
Matthewes teaches religious studies at the University of Virginia and here brings the vast literature on the "problem " of evil, and especially the writings of Reinhold Niebuhr and Hannah Arendt, into conversation with St. Augustine. The argument is gracefully, and at points poetically, presented, and, in a sometimes indirect but effective manner, is solidly grounded in the cross and resurrection. Especially noteworthy is the author's appreciation of the many dynamics of "tradition" in Christian knowing, believing, and teaching. THis is a First Things review
