The works of Saint Augustine : a translation for the 21st century by Augustine( Book )

30 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990, New City Press, in conjunction with the Augustinian Heritage Institute, began the project knows as: The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. The plan is to translate and publish all 132 works of Saint Augustine, his entire corpus into modern English. This represents the first time in which The Works of Saint Augustine will all be translated into English. Many existing translations were often archaic or faulty, and the scholarship was outdated. New City Press is proud to offer the best modern translations available. The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century will be translated into 49 published books. To date, 41 books have been published by NCP containing 93 of The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. Augustine's writings are useful to anyone interested in patristics, church history, theology and Western civilization. -- Publisher
The Trinity by Augustine( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine knows by faith that God is a trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he is seeking as far as possible to understand what he believes. In the first seven books Augustine begins by searching the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments for clues to understanding and then argues in the language of philosophy and logic to defend the orthodox statement of the doctrine against the Arians. In the last eight books Augustine seeks to understand the mystery of the divine Trinity by observing an analogous trinity in the image of God, which is the human mind; and in so doing, he also suggests a program for the serious Christian of spiritual self-discovery and renewal. This second edition is newly produced, now featuring convenient footnotes rather than the previously used endnotes
Nine sermons of Saint Augustine on the Psalms by Augustine( Book )

11 editions published between 1957 and 1959 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Christian doctrine by Augustine( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This translation of St. Augustine's De doctrina Christiania is based on the Benedictine text. Quotations from the Bible appear in the Douay-Rheims version, but the footnotes contain reference in brackets to indicate the location of corresponding verses in the King James Bible where the Bible contains the same material arranged according to a different system. Essentially, On Christian Doctrine is an introduction to the interpretation and explanation of the Bible."--Translator's preface and introduction
Being human : a biblical perspective by Edmund Hill( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sets out to look for answers to the question in Psalm 8: "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?"

Essential sermons by Aurelius Augustinus( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eleven volumes of Augustine's popular sermons, expertly translated by Fr. Edmund Hill (1910-1997) in clear, contemporary English, showcase Augustine the brilliant speaker and engaging preacher of the Word and have proven an indispensable resource for contemporary scholarship. Hill's translation and extensive notes have received many accolades by scholars, but professors have clamored for a one-volume, affordable, anthology to be used in teaching undergraduates, graduate students and seminarians. Fr. Doyle has undertaken this task and has carefully chosen an anthology that is representative of the Bishop's finest preaching on a wide range of subjects, including God, Christ, sin, grace, conversion, martyrdom, sacraments, marriage, wealth, poverty, Christmas, Easter, and living the Christian life. Students and preachers alike will discover Augustine's masterful interpretation of the Word of God and creative skills in engaging the people of God by using the finest rhetorical skills available to his time based on the principles taught by Cicero. Essential Sermons includes mostly whole sermons with a brief introduction but in some cases powerful excerpts from lengthy homilies that would have been impossible to incorporate in a one volume work. Fr. Doyle has written a concise Introduction to Augustine's preaching and has included a table of themes for easy and convenient consultation
