"The Council of Nicaea in 325 AD marked the beginning of a new era in Christianity. For the first time, doctrines were organized into a single creed. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers did most of their writing during and after this important event in Church history. Unlike the previous era of Christian writing, the Nicene and Post-Nicene era is dominated by a few very important and prolific writers. In Volume VII of the 14-volume collected writings of the Nicenes and Post-Nicenes (first published between 1886 and 1889), readers will discover Saint Augustines commentaries on the writings of John and his first writings as a newly converted Christian. In the Soliloquies, Augustine reasons through his conversion, trying to justify his new faith; these are intensely personal journeys toward truth, the product of a thoughtful soul seeking comfort and reassurance. Spiritual seekers wavering in their faith may find both sections of this book helpful in exploring their beliefs."
