Cooper introduces the life and thought of Augustine through discussing the Confessions and shows how many of Augustine’s human struggles are still with us today. He also examines the theological views of Augustine that emerged through the important controversies of his times. Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history.
