Written between A.D. 413 and 426, The City of God is one of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, a book which is vital to the understanding of modern Western society. Augustine originally intended it to be an apology for Christianity against the accusation that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire, which had occurred just three years earlier. Indeed, Augustine produced a great amount of evidence to prove that paganism was responsible for this event. However, by the time the work was finished, the book had taken on a larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the conflict between good (the City of God) and evil (the Earthly City). Augustine foresees that through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, and those in the Earthly City, destruction. Download and start listening now!

    " Augustine basically tackles the entire history of salvation, the philosophy of Plato, and a myriad of objections to Christianity. The book is very long, but that is because Augustine gives reasonable, logical answers to any objections he can think of to the points he makes in this book. This book will give you a deeper understanding of your faith, and of philosophy. "

    " After several months I have finally finished the City of God. The book is everything everyone claims it is - challenging and brilliant, a seminal work of Christian theology. This is a must read for any serious student of historical theology "
