What the Theologians Say 4


Aurelius Augustinus, more commonly known as ‘St. Augustine of Hippo,’ or often simply ‘Augustine’ ] (354–430 C.E.): was a Christian Neoplatonist, a North African Bishop, and a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. Augustine is one of the main figures who helped to merge the Greek philosophical tradition and the Judeo-Christian religious and scriptural traditions. Augustine’s authority and thought came to exert a pervasive and enduring influence even up to the present day.

Here are some of his most well-known quotes:

To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek Him the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.

Your best servant is the person who does not attend so much to hearing what he himself wants as to willing what he has heard from you.

The Bible was composed in such a way that as beginners mature, its meaning grows with them.
