Kurzbeschreibung

Augustine of Hippo (/ɒˈɡʌstɨn/;[1] Latin: Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis;)[2] (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430), Bishop of Hippo Regius, also known as Augustine, St. Augustine, or St. Austin[3] was a Romanized Berber philosopher and theologian.
Augustine, a Latin church father, is one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. He "established anew the ancient faith" (conditor antiquae rursum fidei), according to his contemporary, Jerome.[4] In his early years he was heavily influenced by Manichaeism and afterwards by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus,[5] but after his conversion and baptism (387), he developed his own approach to philosophy and theology accommodating a variety of methods and different perspectives.[6] He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom and framed the concepts of original sin and just war. When the Roman Empire in the West was starting to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Church as a spiritual City of God (in a book of the same name) distinct from the material Earthly City.[7] His thought profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. Augustine's City of God was closely identified with the church, and was the community which worshipped God.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant Theological Gem 7. März 2011
Von Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
History of Christianity is filled with remarkable men and women that have by their extraordinary lives and works exhibited what true discipleship is all about. However, even among these a few have had such an important and profound effects on Christian faith and practice that they tower well above everyone else. Saint Augustine, bishop of Hippo and one of the doctors of the Church, is clearly one such individual. He was a vastly prolific writer and his works to this day are used in theology courses and as a reference for theological study.

"On Grace and Free Will" is a short treatise (it can be read in less than two hours) on two of the most important theological and philosophical concepts. St. Augustine's approach to them shows Christian theological reasoning at its best: firmly founded in the Scripture, yet using careful reasoning and persuasive argumentation in order to go beyond any particular set of statements and discern deeper truths and overarching themes. The conclusions that St. Augustine draws are intellectually sophisticated, and have stood the test of time, as the majority of Christians still adhere to them.

This is a beautiful short work of theology that is remarkably accessible. It is a timeless classic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Work! 25. Dezember 2010
Von Jason M. Griffin Sr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book to be astounding in it's simplicity & depth. I see the doctrine of grace did not start with Luther or Calvin as so many heretics claim!

Augustine did a wonderful job at stating and explaining the mystery of God's grace.

5.0 von 5 Sternen St. Augustine's hypothesis of God's sovereign grace and human kinds free will. 28. Februar 2013
Von Frank Forthman Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
St. Augustine wrestles with the age old question of allowing for God's sovereign grace and human kind's free will. He incorporates the use of Old and New Testament scriptures as well as the Apocryphal writings to lament his hypothesis. Since the beginning of time human kind has struggled with personal will and the sovereignty of God. Augustine's work is a classic treasure and in spite of the difficulty of the question a very good read. I highly recommend it for the Protestant as well as the Catholic. I graduated from seminary over 20 years ago therefore having been out of academia for so long I like to occasionally pick up an ageless classic. It certainly was well worth the time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen On Grace and Free Will 6. Januar 2013
Von George Krieger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found the logic straight forward and easy to follow. I did not expect that. The subject was well covered but yet today, about 1600 years later, some still have difficulty with it.

I counsel you first to thank God for such things as you understand; but as for all which is beyond the reach of your mind, pray for understanding from the Lord, observing, at the same time peace and love among yourselves; and until He Himself lead you to perceive what at present is beyond your comprehension, walk firmly on the ground of which you are sure. &quote;
