Among the fathers of the early Christian church there are few who seem larger than life, Augustine being the exception. Cooper distills much of Augustine's two major works, CONFESSIONS and CITY OF GOD, to give us a biography of this saint, covering much of his pre-conversion stage. Simon Vance moves in and out of Augustine's voice effortlessly while giving us what could be a contemporary film, given the earthy subject matter and its timeless story of the struggle towards faith. True to its moniker, this entry in the Armchair series makes accessible the life and works of, arguably, the most influential Christian thinker of all.
