In the writings gathered here, Augustine clarifies difficult passages in the Old Testament, from the building of Noah’s ark to the struggles of Job, and addresses common questions from the members of his congregation. Each work is introduced and annotated by modern scholars who provide context for Augustine’s life and thought at the time of his writing.

“For, just as in keeping with our custom the head is covered while mourning, because an uncovered [head] is more usual, so, because they used to wear a covering for the head, it had to be bared for those who were mourning. It forbids this, then, lest they mourned those by whose punishment the Lord was made holy, that is, [by whose punishment] the fear of him was commended.” (Page 226)

“It is often and firmly indicated that fear belongs rather to the Old Testament just as love does to the New, although the New is hidden in the Old and the Old is revealed in the New.” (Page 125)

“Failing like a torrent (6:15), for mercy once poured over me, and I dried up, and there was no water-source for me. Or like waves they have washed over me (6:15), as if my consolations were drink.” (Page 631)

“For from him are truth and rebuke (23:7), that is, he does not rebuke unjustly. He prolongs my judgment until the end (23:7). Even if he corrects now, afterwards he will display [judgment].” (Page 658)

“For the arrows of the Lord are in my body (6:4): the words of God by which the soul is transfixed when it is brought to a confession [of sin].” (Page 629)
