Lengthy biography of Augustine originally written in 1966 but now updated with a lengthy epilogue summarizing the last last 30 years of scholarship on the subject. It was a very interesting and informative book and I learned much about the Roman Africa of the 300s and 400s that I had known before. However, it was ultimately not the book I was seeking. I was more interested in reading about the theology of Augustine and why he is still influential today. I'll keep looking for that book.
