is a dramatic personal narrative of a soul choosing between eternal
life and death, an exploration of the timeless questions great minds
have been asking for millennia, and a prayer of praise and thanksgiving
to God. I Burned for Your Peace is not a scholarly work but an
unpacking of the riches found in Augustine's text. It is existential,
personal, and devotional, as well as warm, witty, and thought-provoking.

overhear and understand the intimate conversation between a towering
intellect and the God whose peace he at last humbly accepts.
