Augustine’s Theology of Wisdom

by Benjamin T. Quinn

In Christ, the Way, Benjamin T. Quinn recovers and evaluates Augustine’s rich writing on wisdom. While many have acknowledged sapientia (wisdom) as central in Augustine, few have offered a full treatment of his definition of wisdom and how it ordered his thought. Quinn remedies this need, tracing the development of Augustine’s thought from his earliest reflections to De Trinitate, his most systematic treatment of wisdom.

Four Models of the Relationship Between Baptism, Catechesis, and Communion

by Jonathan D. Watson

Jonathan D. Watson’s In the Name of Our Lord provides an explanatory typology and incisive analysis for thinking through these interrelated questions. Watson’s four-model framework accounts for the major historical varieties of relationship between baptism and catechesis as rites of initiation into the church. With this framework in place, Watson then considers each model in relation to the others.

Praise for Books in the Series

“In this well-researched and thought-provoking academic study, Jonathan Watson employs ‘liturgical logic’ to provide an insightful and scholarly analysis of how different church traditions relate baptism, catechism, and Communion to each other.”

Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

“Quinn’s work guides readers through the contours of wisdom according to Augustine, while suggesting avenues for further research. It is valuable not only to researchers of Augustine’s thought, but for those wishing to pursue the task of theology in light of the wisdom of Christ.”

Coleman M. Ford, assistant professor of Christian formation, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
