If you are interested in what Augustine thinks about grace, justification, and works, then this is a good book with which to begin. In this book Augustine addresses the antinomians of his day who were arguing that new converts to the faith should be not required to amend their behavior to be baptized. Augustine vigorously against the antinomian principles.

It's important to remember that for Augustine, the person who is baptized is justified. Works canno earn justiication: they flow from justification and confirm justification.

Anyone who thinks Augustine's sola gratis is compatible with Luther's sola fide should read this book.

I treatise on why works are necessary for a believer after baptism and why doing things like penance or at least not continuing in things like adultery should be prerequisites for sacramental participation.

I read this in mid-October 2014. This was at the same time as the Synod on the Family - and was quite surprised that Augustine uses divorced Christians as one of his main examples in this book. It was a timely - and unlooked for - explanation for why the divorce-topic is such an important one and why it requires the highest level of church authority to wrestle with it. This history was in fact my favorite part of this book.

Similar to other Augustine's writings, this offers his usual very direct and clear discussion of his understanding on the importance of change/repentance/penance for sins.

I enjoyed it a lot - but again the timing of when I read it played a significant role in why I liked it so much
