About the Book

In this groundbreaking study, scholar and church planter Ryan Denton sheds new light on Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD).

Through careful historical and cultural research, Denton weaves a fascinating study of the pastoral heart and gospel-driven mind of one of Christendom’s seminal figures – a man whose prowess as a theologian has unjustly clouded his zealous determination to see souls saved and the Kingdom of Christ advanced on earth.

Breathtakingly beautiful in its scope, Augustine the Evangelist is a significant work of Christian scholarship and an inspiring lesson about the importance of evangelism.

Praise for Augustine the Evangelist

“This is a great story of a man with an evangelical heart in action, but even more marvelously, it is a narrative of our Lord Jesus Christ saving and sanctifying a sinner from another time and culture to become an instrument for the salvation and sanctification of many others.”
William Vandoodewaard, Professor, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, author of The Quest for the Historical Adam: Genesis, Hermeneutics, and Human Origins

“Denton’s work will challenge and inspire you to be more faithful in the task of the Great Commission.”
Timothy K. Beougher, Associate Dean, Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Ministry; Professor of Evangelism and Church Growth, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“For those of us who greatly admire Augustine the theologian—this book challenges us to imitate Augustine the evangelist.”
Mark Gring, Associate Professor and Chair, Communication Studies Department, Texas Tech University

“This book opens up a whole new perspective that is bound to be a great encouragement to Christians today…it drips with gospel-optimism which is so desperately needed in our day and age of gloom and defeatism. What a refreshing and edifying read!”
Sacha Walicord, Pastor at Walker United Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, MI

“Educational and exciting, this volume motivates us to follow in the footsteps of this great theologian who earnestly preached Christ to the lost. I highly encourage everyone to ‘take up and read’ this book.”
Rob Ventura, Pastor at Grace Community Baptist Church, North Providence, RI, co-author of A Portrait of Paul and Spiritual Warfare
