By Robert Dodaro, George Lawless
Augustine of Hippo (AD 354-430) is arguably the main arguable Christian philosopher in background. His positions on philosophical and theological issues were the topics of severe scrutiny and feedback from his lifetime to the present.
Augustine and his Critics gathers twelve experts' responses to fashionable criticisms of his idea, overlaying: own and spiritual freedom; the self and God; sexuality, gender and the physique; spirituality; asceticism; cultural reports; and politics.
Stimulating and insightful, the gathering bargains forceful arguments for missed historic, philosophical and theological views that are at the back of a few of Augustine's so much unpopular convictions.

While it is difficult to characterize, without unfair generalisations, national approaches to Augustinian research, certain patterns of interests, methods and mentalities continue to distinguish the geographical regions in which the majority of studies in Augustine are published. Looking broadly over the last decade or so, German and Austrian studies in Augustine still tend to stress lexicographical concerns, while southern Mediterranean research continues to be conducted along very traditional scholastic and philological lines.
