Praise

“[Wills] renders Augustine’s famous and influential text in direct language with all the spirited wordplay and poetic strength intact.”
-Los Angeles Times

“[Wills's] translations . . . are meant to bring Augustine straight into our own minds; and they succeed. Well-known passages, over which my eyes have often gazed, spring to life again from Wills’s pages.”
-Peter Brown, The New York Review of Books

“Augustine flourishes in Wills’s hand.”
-James Wood

“A masterful synthesis of classical philosophy and scriptural erudition.”
-Chicago Tribune
