In this new audiobook, he turns his attention to St Augustine. St Augustine not only shaped the development of Western theology, he also made a major contribution to political theory (The City of God) and, through his Confessions, to the understanding of human psychology.
Rowan Williams has an entirely fresh perspective on these matters, and the chapter titles in this new audiobook demonstrate this at a glance - 'Language Reality and Desire', 'Politics and the Soul', 'Paradoxes of Self Knowledge', 'Insubstantial Evil'. As with his previous titles, Dostoevsky, The Edge of Words and Faith in the Public Square, this new study is sure to be a major contribution on a compelling subject.

This book is an interesting concept. The former Archbishop of Canterbury is trying, seemingly desperately, to rejuvenate interest in Augustine the Priest through Augustine the Philosopher and at the same time give context to Augustine's works in a manner that the modern audience can understand without having depth into any one book.
I personally do not believe in God, however Augustine's writing have had a massive impact on the west and understanding him helps understand the west.
