“Otherworldly in the world” by Peter Brown

“The City of God, far from being a book about flight from the world, is a book whose recurrent theme is ‘our business within this common mortal life’; it is a book about being otherworldly in the world.”

–Peter Brown, Augustine of Hippo: A Biography (Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1967/2000), 324.
