Gonzalez book cover on Augustine

Latin America and Augustine

Jun. 25, 2014

by Joel Elowsky

The renowned church historian Justo Gonzalez has recently authored a book on Augustine that reflects the Latin American idea of Mestizo in relation to Augustine's mixed background as a Roman and as a Berber. There is a review by Alberto Garcia that I have included on my blog on this website. The text is currently only available in Spanish, but the CEAC is in discussions with the author about a possible translation into English. We encourage you to read the review and provide us with feedback. The inter-cultural exploration of such a historic figure by a scholar such as Gonzalez is to be welcomed.
