"There are certain rules for interpreting the scriptures which, as I am well aware, can usefully be passed on to those with an appetite for such study..." On Christian Teaching is one of Augustine's more important works on the classical tradition. Written to enable Christian students to be their own interpreters of the Bible, it provides an outline of Christian theology, a detailed discussion of ethical problems, and an early contribution to sign theory. Augustine also makes a systematic attempt to determine what elements of classical education are permissible for a Christian, and in the last book suggests ways in which Ciceronian rhetorical principles may help in communicating the faith. This provides a close representation of Augustine's thought and expression. References to the classical background are explained and Roger Green's introduction describes the aims and circumstances of the work, and outlines its influence on major figures in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This book is intended for undergraduates and postgraduates in theology, church history and the history of classical tradition.show more
