About this title:

Synopsis: Along with his Confessions, The City of God is undoubtedly St. Augustine's most influential work. In the context of what begins as a lengthy critique of classic Roman religion and a defence of Christianity, Augustine touches upon numerous topics, including the role of grace, the original state of humanity, the possibility of waging a just war, the ideal form of government, and the nature of heaven and hell. But his major concern is the difference between the City of God and the City of Man - one built on love of God, the other on love of self. One cannot but be moved and impressed by the author's breadth of interest and penetrating intelligence. For all those who are interested in the greatest classics of Christian antiquity, The City of God is indispensable. This long-awaited translation by William Babcock is published in two volumes, with an introduction and annotation that make Augustine's monumental work approachable. Books 11-22 offer Augustine's Christian view of history, including the Christian view of human destiny. The INDEX for Books 1-22 (both volumes of The City of God) is contained in this edition.

Product Description: This long-awaited translation by William Babcock is published in two volumes. Books 11-22 offer Augustines Christian view of history, including his view of human destiny. The INDEX for both volumes is contained in this 2nd volume. This lucid translation of Augustines complicated Latin text, complemented by an expert introduction and helpful notes, is a remarkable achievement indeed. A new jewel in the crown of an already famous series that is highly appreciated worldwide. -- Johannes van Oort, Editor of Vigiliae Christianae and author of Jerusalem and Babylon. All will be grateful to William Babcock for his new subheadings and summaries, which trace the articulations of Augustines carefully connected argument. Babcocks long reflection and deep understanding, expressed in his outstanding Introduction, shape every sentence of this clear and thoughtful translation. -- Gillian Clark, Professor Emerita, University of Bristol; Co-editor, Oxford Early Christian Studies
