A Desire to Know or a Desire to Think I Know? (Part 1 of 2)

Link to Part 2. A Problem I was considering buying a hardback copy of City of God by Augustine on Amazon.com and my eyes glanced down to the reviews section.  A semi-well-known atheist blogger wrote an eloquent review of the book; explaining why Augustine just isn’t worth reading.  One of […]

How Does Man Know God?
