"By focusing on Augustine's appropriation of the methods of scriptural interpretation used by Hilary and Ambrose in defense of the Nicene definition, Adam Ployd has proposed a promising approach to the Donatist controversy and a new understanding of Augustine's ecclesiology as Trinitarian." --J. Patout Burns, Edward A. Malloy Professor of Catholic Studies emeritus, Vanderbilt Divinity School
"Adam Ployd invites the reader into a seven-month period of Augustine's preaching early in the fifth century. He moves beyond the Augustine-of-controversy and gives us a picture of him engaged with his people and talking about their faith in down-to-earth ways. Augustine's faith-sharing is intent on building up that community, hoping to move them beyond the century-long division from their neighbors. That history is also pertinent today." --Allan D. Fitzgerald, O.S.A., Director of the Augustinian Institute, Villanova University
"In this very welcome book Adam Ployd offers an exemplary reading of Augustine's sermons as theological texts. Ployd shows us Augustine playing the music of his theology: joining, expanding, and interweaving the great themes of his theology to seduce his audience. Students of early Christianity, theologians, and preachers alike will appreciate this searching account of Trinitarian theology and ecclesiology in one of the most fundamental of early Christian writers." --Lewis Ayres, Professor of Catholic and Historical Theology, University of Durham
"Readers will find a wealth of theological insight in Augustine, Trinity, and the Church."--Exploring Church History
