The city of God by Augustine( Book )

70 editions published between 1871 and 2013 in English and held by 2,831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I suppose there is almost no one who would deny, if it were put to him, that the greatest possible attainment a man can make in this world is likeness to The Lord Jesus Christ.
