The definitive compendium of Cavadini's essays on Augustine Visioning Augustine offers readers an expertly selected collection of essays exploring the text and history of the theology of Saint Augustine. Prominent scholar and essayist, John Cavadini, offers modern audiences an innovative framework for understanding Augustine, integrating articles and essays on significant texts, historical and contemporary perspectives and insights into Augustine's development as a theologian. Examining themes such as the transformation of the human will in De doctrina Christiana and Augustine's critique of philosophy in City of God, Cavadini provides clear and accessible smaller-size essays that serve as entry points for those interested in Augustinian scholarship. The author's meditations on Augustinian texts invite readers to re-evaluate their interpretations and learn about the subtle and sophisticated vocabulary of Augustine. An encounter with Augustine the Christian theologian, Cavadini contends, is not a narrowly focused parochial experience, but instead a challenge to enlarge our horizons. Written by one of the most prominent Augustinian scholars and essayists in the field Addresses ecumenical and cultural issues that weaken contemporary interest in Christian faith Offers modern readers historical context on Augustinian theology Provides a single-volume collection of Cavadini's essays on Augustine written over the course of more than two decades Accessible prose and intellectual sensitivity to modern theological problemsmake Visioning Augustine an indispensable volume for graduate students, scholars and professionals in all areas of Christian theology.
