Augustine of Hippo Part 2 of 2: Rightly dividing truth
Samples, KR. 2001.  Facts for Faith (6):34-39. CELD ID 5838

Augustine's life (A.D. 354-430) can be divided virtually into halves. The first half of his life (see FACTS for FAITH 5) was spent searching for the truth that would give meaning, purpose, and significance to his life. The second half of his life was spent reflecting upon, explaining, defending, and living out the truth that he had encountered through faith in Jesus Christ. Given his lifelong quest for truth and his years of leadership in the church, Augustine made many contributions of enduring value.
