The Life and Thought of St. Augustine of Hippo - Presented by Dr. Chad Gerber
Jan. 23, 2013 - Jan. 23, 2013
Event Time: 7 PM - 8:30 PM
Part of "The Saints: Five Catholic Thinkers Who Challenged the Church," a five-part series on great Catholic thinkers.
St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) was, at different periods in his life, a father, a professor, and a bishop. He became one of the most beloved Saints and influential theologians of all time. He was also a sinner. He tells us of his past sins and his constant dependence upon divine Grace in his spiritual memoir, the Confessions - one of the most widely read works of Western literature. In this presentation, Dr. Gerber will recount Augustine’s spiritual odyssey and highlight the ways that it shaped his thinking about God, evil, and redemption.
