St. Augustine

The happy life is this—to rejoice to God, in God, and for God.

St. Augustine (354–430) is widely considered one of the greatest theologians and philosophers who ever lived. His impact on Christian and secular thought is immeasurable. He wrote more books on more topics than anyone in early Christian history. Only the Bible has been more influential than St. Augustine.

Many of his 117 books are masterpieces of Christian literature. These include The City of God,The Confessions, The Enchiridion, On Christian Doctrine, and On the Trinity. The Confessions, Augustine’s account of his conversion, has inspired millions to become the-best-version-of-themselves, and is one of the most widely-read books ever written. St. Augustine wrote over 400 sermons and 270 letters as well.
