The eleven volumes of Augustine's Sermons to the People, translated by Fr. Edmund Hill (1990-1997) in clear contemporary English, showcase Augustine the brilliant speaker and engaging preacher of the Word. They have proven an indispensable resource for contemporary scholars, who laud Hills expert translation and extensive notes. But professors have clamored for an affordable one-volume anthology designed for undergraduate, graduate, and seminary classes. From the Bishops finest preaching, Fr. Doyle has selected sermons that represent a wide range of subjects, including God, Christ, sin, grace, conversion, martyrdom, sacraments, marriage, wealth, poverty, Christmas, Easter, and living the Christian life. Students and preachers alike will discover Augustine's message as well as his medium: his masterful interpretation of the Word of God and his creative use of Ciceronian rhetoric to engage the people of God. Fr. Doyle has provided a concise introduction to Augustine's preaching and a convenient table of themes for easy consultation.

Augustine of Hippo headshot

Augustine of Hippo (354-430) was born in North Africa. One of the most important early theologians of the church, he is best known for his memoir of conversion in Confessions. His later publications, like The Trinity and City of God, continue to be vital works every theologian must engage with.
