Encountering Augustine Through His Letters
Encountering Augustine Through His Letters:
A Master Class with James Wetzel, James K. A. Smith, and Sarah Stewart-Kroeker

The Augustine of the letters is still the theologian of gritty genius that we find in the Confessions and his other so-called major works, but it is in the letters especially that we find him a mortal of many moods, off script, and engagingly self-revealing. Please join us as we share our sense of some of our favorite letters of his and wend our way together to the place where Augustine is often an inspired companion: the sanctuary of life’s great questions.
