Review of “Commonwealth of Hope: Augustine’s Political Thought” →

Aaron Alexander Zubia in The Wall Street Journal:

In “A Commonwealth of Hope” Michael Lamb, a professor of humanities at Wake Forest University, introduces his readers to another Augustine. This Augustine was not a pessimist but a champion of hope. He encouraged his hearers to hope for the well-being of the city. And he possessed an expansive vision of Christians and non-Christians working together to improve their lives on earth. Mr. Lamb’s Augustine shares what we would call a “liberal” vision of a pluralistic society devoted to temporal peace and prosperity.
