Augustine: City of God. 19 Dec 07
One of the great books books of Western thinking. Although his Confessions is part of the Harvard Classics, The City of God is not. In so many ways this is a far more important work than the Confessions.
For some reason this is not on Project Gutenberg and was assembled from multiple sources with my well worn paperback as a reference. The City of God is divided into 22 books with multiple chapters per book. Only the books are referenced in the Table of Contents as some of the chapters are quite short (a paragraph) while others are quite long and this produced a very uneven output.
Many of the sources had the direct Bible references in-line with the text and these have been preserved in this version. I wish I had had this version when I first read the book.
For those wishing an introduction to The City of God, I suggest this by James J. O'Donnell. For more detailed analysis (read study guide) go to Spark Notes.
