"… the earthly city glories in itself, the Heavenly City glories in the Lord."
City of God is Augustine's magisterial text on Kingdom: the City of Man, and the City of God. Contrary to each other, they are as antithetical as light and dark. The City of Man is concerned with the "darkness" that is passing, while the The City of God is "the light already shining." Lauded as a timeless classic by theologians, this text is vital to understanding early Church ecclesiology.
City of God is part of The Fig Classic Series on Early Church Theology. To view more books in our catalog, visit us at fig-books.com.
