This volume traces the distortion of Augustine's moral thought from the twelfth century to the present day and examines the consequences of replacing it with increasingly secular and impersonal moral systems. In order to avoid the nihilistic conclusions of these systems, John M. Rist proposes a return to a revitalized Augustinian Christianity.
