Christus Sacerdos In The Preaching Of St. Augustine

£60.00

Product description

This book is in very good condition. Its cover is clean, intact, and bright. There is very slight foxing on the spine. On the front end paper, the author has written a message to Professor Robert Markus. Internally the book is virtually as new - clean, tight and unmarked.

This study examines how St. Augustine uses the motif Christus Sacerdos to synthesize the entire mystery of Christ, to define Christian identity, and to oppose counter-identities and doctrines, especially those symbolized by pagan priesthoods. The bishop of Hippo continually joins these three elements - Christology, Christian identity, and polemic - so that the doctrine of Christ is always related to its implications for life on the ground. Augustine shows how the doctrine of Christ entails an identity and an ideal for Christians, defining who they are and what they are to become. He reinforces his teaching about Christ and the Christian with polemic against opposing doctrines, demonstrating the truth of the Christian religion in opposition to pagan cult, and portraying Christian identity in contrast to pagan counter-identity. The study is notable for its attention to how Augustine's Christology functions in his broader thought, especially his pastoral care.
