Praise

“[Wills] renders Augustine’s famous and influential text in direct language with all the spirited wordplay and poetic strength intact.” Los Angeles Times

 

“[Wills’s] translations . . . are meant to bring Augustine straight into our own minds; and they succeed. Well-known passages, over which my eyes have often gazed, spring to life again from Wills’s pages.” —Peter Brown, The New York Review of Books

“Augustine flourishes in Wills’s hand.” —James Wood

“A masterful synthesis of classical philosophy and scriptural erudition.” —Chicago Tribune
