Interestingly, though a book on Doctrine, almost all of the contents consider some aspect of the interpretation of Scripture. This may shed light on a possible assumption that understanding and interpreting Scripture is foundational or prerequisite to Doctrine. Want to have good Doctrine? Then learn good interpretation and good Doctrine will inevitably come. It is amazing and comforting that what is found in these pages is very similar to what many scholars are teaching today. Nothing is really new. The reader should find here a great deal of insight in Augustine's thinking. This book shows clearly how this great influential Church father views and interprets Scripture.
My professor very wisely had us read book first. (This volume contains four books) The first three were difficult and tedious, but the in the fourth God brought meaning and understanding in areas I found useful. My suggestion is read the fourth book and skip the first three.
