Final thoughts on a year with Augustine

Did not have the time to write as much as I would have liked (It was a busy year.). But here are some final thoughts on reading Confessions and City of God by Augustine:
1. The depth and breadth of Augustine’s knowledge (including philosophy, history, politics, and the arts) is impressive.
2. Augustine’s reliance on Platonic thinking and his dependence on allegory weaken some of his theology.
3. Interesting how some of his thoughts became the cornerstone of theology through the ages and how other thoughts have been ignored or forgotten.
