Know Your Theologians: Augustine in a McNuttshell
Jennifer and David McNutt
In 386, in a garden in Milan, the future Bishop of Hippo, Augustine, experienced an encounter with God that would forever transform his life. Following his baptism by Church Father Ambrose the following year, Augustine would begin to write theology that would shape and transform Western Christian belief and practice with a legacy that continues today. Over the course of two classes, you will be introduced to the life and thought of Augustine with particular focus on his Confessions. Join us as we get to know one of the greatest Christian theologians of the church’s history and how he continues to inform our faith today. (Second of two sessions.)
Jennifer McNutt, PhD, is Associate Professor of Theology and History of Christianity at Wheaton College. David McNutt, PhD, is an Associate Editor at IVP Academic, an imprint of InterVarsity Press, and a Guest Professor at Wheaton College. The McNutts are launching a new ministry called McNuttshell Ministries, Inc.
