Augustine : a new biography by James Joseph O'Donnell( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine, sinner and saint, the theologian who served as bishop of Hippo from 396 C.E. until his death in 430 C.E., is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers in the western world. During his post-Confessions years he became prominent as a churchman, politician, and writer, and O'Donnell looks back at the events in the Confessions from this period in Augustine's life. Much of Augustine's writing consists of sermons and letters about the events of his time: prosperous men converting to Christianity to get ahead, priests covering up sexual and financial peccadilloes, generals playing coldly calculated games of Roman geopolitics--these are the figures who stand out in Augustine's world and who populate O'Donnell's portrait, set against a background of the battle over the future of Christianity.--From publisher description

Augustine by James Joseph O'Donnell( Book )

Saint Augustine -- the celebrated theologian who served as Bishop of Hippo from 396 C.E. until his death in 430 C.E. -- is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers in the Western world. His autobiography, Confessions, remains among the most important religious writings in the Christian tradition. In this eye-opening and eminently readable biography, renowned historical scholar James J. O'Donnell picks up where Augustine himself left off to offer a fascinating, in-depth portrait of an unparalleled politician, writer, and churchman in a time of uncertainty and religious turmoil. Augustine is a triumphant chronicle of an extraordinary life that is certain to surprise and enlighten even those who believed they knew the complex and remarkable man of God

Augustine, sinner & saint : a new biography by James Joseph O'Donnell( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born Aurelius Augustinus in Tagaste, now Souk Ahras, Algeria, in 354 AD, this trail-blazing churchman was not baptized a Christian until the age of 33, following a religious crisis that ended his meteoric rise from provincial obscurity to the fringes of an imperial court. Nine years later, he was ordained a bishop at Hippo, a wealthy port city in Roman-ruled North Africa. Not long after, between the years 397 and 401, he wrote the Confessions - a profound, intimate work of meditation on his own identity, his pasts, and his future." "Who was Augustine before, after, and beyond the Confessions? What strengths of character and twists of fate, or perhaps 'predestination' (a notion he vigorously defended), propelled the son of a minor landowner, with no money to speak of and few connections, to become a powerful leader and eloquent shaper of affairs in his own time? Beyond dogma, what is Augustine's legacy for global history?" "In this biography James J. O'Donnell, preeminent Augustinian scholar, offers insights into a figure - saint to many - who turns out to be more complex, more important, and perhaps more interesting than even readers of the Confessions suspect."--Jacket
