This book examines Augustine's description of the actually existing world, especially that aspect most important for the human pursuit of happiness: the human being and God. It begins with an overview of the characteristics of the human individual and the context in which they must live out their lives, a context dominated by two seemingly contradictory realities: the existence of God and the existence of evil.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A solid, well-written, and comprehensive introduction to the philosophical thought of Augustine of Hippo. Fr. Burt's study is written clearly and with a deep appreciation of the value of the ideas of the bishops of Hippo for men and women of today. -- Roland J. Teske S.J., Marquette University * CHOICE *
The author's discussion of competing interpretations is confined to his footnotes, a strategy that results in a smoother reading text. The bibliography is especially helpful for less specialized readers. * CHOICE *
