In this Journal podcast history professor and scholar Greg Sandford provides a brief biography of Augustine and gives context to Mrs. Eddy’s statement: “Of the ancient writers since the first century of the Christian era perhaps none lived a more devout Christian life up to his highest understanding than St. Augustine.” (Message to The Mother Church for 1901, p. 28)
