This volume presents new translations of five of AugustineA‚a€™s works: The Excellence of Marriage, Holy Virginity, The Excellence of Widowhood, Adulterous Marriages, and Continence.... The volume is to be commended on several points. The translation itself is in eminently readable, clear English that should be accessible to anyone interested in Augustine.... The general introduction does an excellent job of placing these works in the context of AugustineA‚a€™s career, showing how Augustine reacts to controversies with the Manichees, Jovinian, Jerome, and the Pelagians, while maintaining a commitment to the threefold goods of marriage A‚a€” procreation, fidelity, and sacrament. This is a wonderful collection that allows readers to see the complexity of AugustineA‚a€™s thought on a difficult topic.A‚a€ Kim Paffenroth Journal of Early Christian StudiesThis volume presents new translations of five of AugustineA‚a€™s works: The Excellence of Marriage, Holy Virginity, The Excellence of Widowhood, Adulterous Marriages, and Continence....
