Publishers Description Addressed to an educated general readership, Lancel's authoritative study places St Augustine against the colourful background of the Mediterranean world of antiquity, exploring the major influences, events and competing philosophies which were formative for his thought and theology. Attention is given to the essential features of what became both Catholic and Protestant doctrines, the dotrine of grace in controversy with Pelagius and to Augustine's formidable supporter Julian of Eclanum. This translation invites English-speaking readers to share in Lancel's intimate and sympathetic knowledge of one of the greatest figures in Christian antiquity.

Reviews - What do customers think about St Augustine?
Good for the price May 21, 2009
This was a used book which was available for a great price: $8.00 for a 600+-page book, which was, in dact, brand new. The contents were good, but Lancel shares the propensity of most Augustinian scholars to "explain" or defend Augustine.
