Praise

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

-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
