This book was written near the end of the Roman Empire, by a Christian who had been removed from the service of the Emporer and put in prison. He is meditating on his life, and trying to understand his misfortune through philosophy. Although he is a Christian, he focuses on philosophy rather than theology to explain his predicament. He provides some wonderful insights; I would recommend the book highly. The book combines Greek philosophy with the idea of a personal God at the center of the universe, and focuses on the nature of the Good.
