http://schema.org/description

  • ""Most theologians want to paint the development of Augustine's doctrine of grace as a turn away from Platonist philosophy to something more distinctively Christian, but Phillip Cary argues that it is a synthesis of the two, a development within Augustine's Christian Platonism."--Résumé de l'éditeur."
  • "Cary traces the development of Augustine's epochal doctrine of grace, arguing that it does not represent a rejection of Platonism in favor of a more purely Christian point of view null a turning from Plato to Paul, as it is often portrayed. Instead, Augustine reads Paul and other Biblical texts in light of his Christian Platonist inwardness, producing a new concept of grace as an essentially inward gift. --from publisher description."
