"With the modern world's new appreciation for the fragility of this planet and the first papal encyclical calling all Christians to an 'ecological spirituality,' the time is right to return to classical texts and see how foundational thinkers like St. Augustine of Hippo embraced and elucidated the goodness of creation. Jared Ortiz accordingly offers an unmatchable work by showing how creation is richly understood throughout Augustine's Confessions. Ortiz rightly shows how Augustine's creation is God's primal and persistent invitation to all, the place where the human person encounters the divine, and the fruitful source of the church's consecration."
