Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0739189220, Hardcover)

Apocalyptic thought pervaded Augustine’s time even more than our own, where it still resurfaces with frequency and intensity. Augustine’s handling of this topic captures him at the height of his powers, exercising his substantial skills at Biblical exegesis and rhetoric, as well as his abilities to deal with the social upheaval that followed on the Fall of Rome in 410. The essays in this book look at Augustine’s thought on apocalyptic, as well as trace Augustine’s influence through the Middle Ages and into modern times.
