John Shines Through Augustine

Selections from the Sermons of Augustine on the Gospel According to Saint John
  • By A. P. Carleton
Product Description
Everyone has heard of Augustine of Hippo, the greatest of the Church Fathers of the Western Christian world; but not so many are acquainted with his writings. This volume presents a simple and straight-forward translation in contemporary English of parts of Augustine's famous series of sermons on St. John's Gospel. The imaginative reader will find himself transported to the Church of Hippo in the fifth century, with its varied sights and sounds. This is not quite the way in which anyone would preach today. This is part of the value of the book, which is not as simple as it looks. The reader has to keep in mind all the time three things--the original words of the Gospel according to St. John; the message that Augustine is trying to convey to his wayward flock at Hippo; the message that God may want to give us today through Augustine's understanding of the words of John. The Rev. A. P. Carleton was ordained from Hartford Theological Seminary in 1930, then returned to the field for the next 24 years. He was president of Aleppo College in Syria for 17 years. He laid the foundation for connecting the work of his own missionary board with that of the Christian Church in India and Latin America. He also set up close liaison with the United Presbyterian Church's missionary program in Europe and was a founder of both the Theological Education Fund and the worldwide Christian Literature Fund.
