The monastic life has been seen as the ideal manifestation of Christian living throughout various points in history, particularly by the Catholic Church. Monasticism: Its Ideals and History and The Confessions of St. Augustine chronicles the development of this idea. Adolph Harnack questions the superiority of this lifestyle, offering compelling insight into what the Bible says about Christian living and detailing the various examples put forth by the Christian Church throughout history. This volume provides a holistic look at the subject of monasticism within the framework of the question of the manifestation of Christ in us through daily living.
The record of the life of St. Augustine (345–430) is found in The Confessions of St. Augustine, and records in great detail the life of one of the Church’s earliest saints. Harnack’s thoughts on St. Augustine’s life make up the second portion of this volume, and they offer a fantastic continuation of the study of what it means to live in Christ.
