The two studies of this book cover the tension that dominates the entire ^theological thinking of Augustine: is Augustine's theology to be viewed as ^Christocentric or theocentric? The problem may be stated another way: what ^is the relationship between the orders of creation and redemption?^The book explores these questions, and shows that the tension between ^"the gift of creation" and "The gift-grace of redemption" brings up ^the problems of theocentrism and Christocentrism in Augustinian thought. ^Augustine cites Romans again and again: "The grace of God through Jesus ^Christ our Lord" (7:25). In this context, Christ is consistently seen as ^mediator between God and humanity. But Augustine is also content with ^another formula: "Through Christ as human being to Christ as God."^In part one, Father Studer tackles the question of "The Grace of Christ" ^to make clear that for Augustine, both in his personal journey and in his ^theological thought, Christ was the way to God. Part two is concerned with ^the concept of God and in passages in which the word "God" is used in ^either a specifically Christian sense or in a broad sense.^Each study takes as its starting point an aspect of the ^Christocentrim/theocentrism question that is based on a short review of ^others' writings about Augustine, followed by a survey of Augustine's most ^important wrtings in chronological order. Each study ends with a ^systematic overview.^Father Basil Studer is the author of "Trinity and Incarnation: The Faith ^of the Early Church" and is co-editor of "History of Theology I: The ^Patristic Period".
