Do you want to know God better?

Augustine of Hippo did too.

Looking inside his heart, he discovered an inward yearning for God that he was able to describe in his writings. "Our hearts are restless," he wrote, "because you have made us for yourself and our hearts find no peace until they rest in you."

For centuries those who have experienced spiritual passion to be filled with God have discovered in Augustine a friend, companion and guide. As you work through Carolyn Nystrom's Christian Classics Bible Study based on Augustine's thought and teaching, you'll have the opportunity to grapple with Scripture, reflect on your own heart's yearning and pursue the peace that comes from God alone.
