Tipo de material: materialTypeLabelLibroSeries Oxford early Christian studies.Editor: Oxford ; New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]Fecha de copyright: ©2018Edición: First edition.Descripción: 304 p. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9780198834922.Tema(s): Agustín, Santo, Obispo de Hipona -- Crítica e interpretación | Juicio final | Redención -- CristianismoResumen: "Augustine's Early Thought on the Redemptive Function of Divine Judgement considers the relationship between Augustine's account of God's judgment and his theology of grace in his early works. How does God use his law and the penal consequences of its transgression in the service of his grace, both personally and through his 'agents' on earth? Augustine reflected on this question from different perspectives. As a teacher and bishop, he thought about the nature of discipline and punishment in the education of his pupils, brothers, and congregants. As a polemicist against the Manichaeans and as a biblical expositor, he had to grapple with issues regarding God's relationship to evil in the world, the violence God displays in the Old Testament, and in the death of0his own Son. Furthermore, Augustine meditated on the way God's judgment and grace related in his own life, both before and after his conversion.0Bart van Egmond follows the development of Augustine's early thought on judgment and grace from the Cassiacum writings to the Confessions. The argument is contextualized both against the background of the earlier Christian tradition of reflection on the providential function of divine chastisement, and the tradition of psychagogy that Augustine inherited from a variety of rhetorical and philosophical sources. This study expertly contributes to the ongoing scholarly discussion on the development of Augustine's doctrine of grace, and to the conversation on the theological roots of his justification of coercion against the Donatists." --
