Atheists...if any are lurking, join and defend your position on why God doesn't exist.  Agnostics you too...isn't it time to get off the fence and take a side? ;D

City of God

Anyone read it?  I heard it was considered one of the greatest books nobody ever reads.  I'm curious about it now.  I've read (parts of ) Augustine's Confessions, but not City of God.

I had a copy laying around somewhere.  Never got a chance to read it.  It is a very important work that every serious Christian scholar should read.

Lol.  Immortal words there.

Yeah, I heard that even though a lot of people haven't read it, it was still a foundational book for medieval Europeans, so it has a very impactful legacy.
