"Such is the power of [Robin] Lane Fox's pen that this biography, which begins with Augustine's birth in 354 AD, captures our modern-day attention, ignites the imagination, and sets the soul stirring."-Chicago Tribune

In Augustine, celebrated historian Robin Lane Fox follows Augustine of Hippo on his journey to the writing of his Confessions. Unbaptized, Augustine indulged in a life of lust before finally confessing and converting. Lane Fox recounts Augustine's sexual sins, his time in an outlawed heretical sect, and his gradual return to spirituality. Magisterial and beautifully written, Augustine is the authoritative portrait of this colossal figure at his most thoughtful, vulnerable, and profound.

"With the power of his writing and deep familiarity with the huge circuit of Augustinian texts, [Robin Lane Fox] reveals with remarkable enthusiasm and sympathy the spiritual and intellectual drama of his remarkable subject."-Financial Times

"A fanatically well-researched new account of Augustine." -National Review
