BUT, I have read numerous works from this compendium and Augustine, while he is heavy reading, is deeply profound and the effort is worthwhile. However, being in my late 60s it is entirely possible that I may not live long enough to read everything I must admit I study Augustine in measured doses Frankly, I can't figure out how he lived long enough to write everything he did. That being said, I encourage you to take the plunge and read study St Augustine.
He was a thinker who was intensely spiritual but also cerebral. Stretch your brain and stimulate your soul with Augustine. Can anybody spell s-t-i-m-u-l-a-t-e? This is an amazing compilation. The quality of the translation and editing is excellent. I have yet to find a single OCR error which is delightfully refreshing; there's only a rare word now and then with an extra space in it. The content is surprisingly easy to understand and uncannily applicable to today's culture and time.
As the moral decay of America accelerates, our society is becoming more and more like that of the ancient Roman world and Augustine's comments are becoming more, not less, applicable. Augustine addresses perennial questions such as why God lets good people suffer and why God allows non-Christian governments to rise to power. Augustine speaks into a world of moral decay and hostility to Christianity with refreshing, unapologetic candor and brilliance. He is an intelligent and amazingly well-read apologist for the Christian faith. I am so grateful to the editors and translators for making this timeless trove of wisdom available to us practically free.
I am also learning a lot about the culture and times of Augustine "for free" since it's embedded in his discussions. Sometimes shocking, always interesting, this is NOT the Roman history you learn in k education. Augustine also has a fascinating perspective on the philosophical giants of the past e. Also quite different from the secular, post modern interpretation usually taught today. The format is easy to read with most chapters being less than 2 pages. The size of the document does make my Kindle run a bit slow though, particularly when underlining and taking notes.
