This volume is to be commended on several points. The translation itself is in eminently readable, clear English that should be accessible to anyone interested in Augustine…. The general introduction does an excellent job of placing these works in the context of Augustine’s career, showing how Augustine reacts to controversies with the Manichees, Jovinian, Jerome, and the Pelagians, while maintaining a commitment to the threefold goods of marriage – procreation, fidelity, and sacrament.
