Lindsey Doolan Haha, calm down! Dr. McIntosh straightened it out during our Traditio lecture. It sounded to me like Augustine thought the whole world wanted to know his thought process on everything, but he was really showing how God works through lives, his own being an example. He hoped to point others to God.
The style still rubs me wrong, but I definitely misunderstood.

W. Littlejohn Ok, well then, up the two stars to at least four or something! :-)

Lanny This is one of my all time favorite books, love love. I'm about to read it for the fourth time.
