"Levering offers to students the best introduction to Augustine devised so far..."
Answer: Once a generation.
If you are even a little bit interested in theology, you'll want to own this book. I cannot wait for my copy.
But don't take my word for it:
“Levering offers to students the best introduction to Augustine devised so far. He makes clear that Augustine himself was no ‘Augustinian’; even though he invented subjective angst and had an acute sense of sin, Augustine was also a humanist and a profound metaphysician. This book successfully inducts us into the bishop of Hippo’s integral blend of soul-searching, critical reading of sacred texts, ontological reflection, and social activism.”
