City of God (Edited by Vernon J. Bourke)
Augustine possessed one of the most brilliant minds in the history of Western civilization. The City of God is a monumental work in which the author represents his view of two cities: the spiritual City of God and the Earthly City. Augustine responds to the accusation that Christianity was to blame for the fall of the Roman Empire.
