St. Augustine, part 1 (7); St. Augustine, part 2 (8), 1961 Dec 3, 10, Side B
This sermon is the eighth of nine in a series of sermons given in Marsh Chapel that are titled "The Inward Journey." In this sermon, Thurman explores St. Augustine's texts "Confessions," and "City of God." He uses each of these texts to navigate St. Augustine's theological posturing towards salvation, original sin, free will, and conversion. The climax of this sermon critiques Augustine's claim that the church is the place to which humanity finds salvation, which is held in juxtaposition to Augustine's emphasis upon God's grace being the vehicle to which salvation and religious are actualized.
