"Gerald Boersma has unearthed a hidden trajectory in the understanding of Christ and of the Christian as imago Dei. Before Augustine was ordained a priest, Christian and Platonic influences had come together in a vision of the whole person - and not just the spirit, mind or soul - as image of God and participating in the divine image." --Fr. Allan Fitzgerald, O.S.A., Director of The Augustinian Institute, Villanova University
"There is no book fully comparable to this brilliant study which offers even more than the title promises - not only a study of Augustine's early views on the image of God, but of their development in his later theology. A must-read for anyone interested in Augustine in particular, or in the theology of the image of God in general." --John Cavadini, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame
"A very clear, systematic, well-structured, scholarly and concise synthesis of the doctrine of imago deployed by Hilary of Poitiers, Marius Victorinus, and Ambrose of Milan. This book is a fine example of the history of ideas and illustrates the growth in Patristic theology by showing that development is a central notion in Latin theology. Boersma succeeds in explaining the originality and complexities of Augustine's doctrine in a very lucid way." --Anthony Dupont, Research Professor of Christian Antiquity, Leuven University
