The T&T Clark Companion to Augustine and Modern Theology is both a theological companion to the study of Augustine, and a resource for thinking about Augustine's importance in modern theology. Each of the essays brings Augustinian depth to a broad range of contemporary theological concerns. The volume unveils cutting-edge Augustinian scholarship for a new generation and at the same time enables readers to see the timely significance of Augustine for today. Each of the essays not only introduces readers to key themes in the Augustinian corpus but also provides readers with fresh interpretations that are fully conversant with the theological problems facing the church in our world today. Designed as both a guide for students and a reference point for scholars, it will seek both to outline the frameworks of key Augustinian debates while at all times pushing forward fresh interpretative strategies concerning his thought.

Clear and Definite Words is a lucid exposure of the present confusion within theological discourse. It charges and proves that avoiding or equivocating on the question of ontology is impossible. It thus undermines the premise of much theological discourse today and lays the way for greater theological clarity and commitment. This book goes head-to-head with great forcefulness and passion against anyone and anything that has served to impede the right of theology to speak with clear and definite words.
