Publisher's Synopsis

At the heart of his brilliant philosophical and theological speculation is his spirituality - a spirituality founded on the reality of the soul's experience of the Trinity in the depths of its interiority.

This book is a collection of his writings, which in every sense must be considered true classics of spirituality in the West. Included are excerpts from Confessions, On the Trinity, The City of God, and Homilies on the Psalms along with the complete texts of the Rule of St. Augustine, On Seeing God, and On the Presence of God.

Excerpt

"He ascended from the body to sense power and from sense power to intellectual judgment by which he acknowledged the eternity of Truth above his changing mind: And then in a flash of a trembling glance, my mind arrived at That Which Is."
