Reviews - What do customers think about Answer to the Pelagians IV (Works of Saint Augustine) (Pt. 4)?
A very good translation Sep 9, 2008
This is the fourth volume in New City Press's translation of Augustine's Anti-Pelagian works. The translations are crisp and clear and written in modern English free of "thees" and "thous." This volume contains a series of letters and short treatises Augustine wrote to the monks of Hadrumentum in North Africa and Lerins in southern Gaul. The monks were disturbed by Augustine's stance on predestination, grace and free will and wondered if the monastic life served any purpose since everything was predestined. Augustine sets out to counter these charges and address their concerns around the year 427 A.D.
