Learn More About Augustine

Augustine thought his mother Monica’s Christian faith was foolish. But she continued to pray for him, even after he left home to start a new life in Rome.Augustine received honor in Rome as a teacher and as “The Voice of the Emperor.” He enjoyed a wealthy lifestyle, but he was not at peace. He began to notice flaws in the thinking and behavior of those around him who were not following Jesus. He realized that the Christians he thought were foolish were actually kind and good.

A stand-off between the Christians and armed soldiers who wanted to take their church forced him to choose which side he wanted to serve, and he, too, became a follower of Jesus.
