"The Restless Heart: A Look at the Concept 'Cor Inquietem (the Restless Heart)' in Saint Augustine of Hippo" from Christian Faith Publishing author Rev. Augustine John Moore is a richly detailed discussion that delves into the profound, multifaceted concept of Saint Augustine's "restless heart," which stands as a symbol for men and women of every age and culture and, in Rev. Moore's work, sets up a deeper appreciation for the life and works of the saint of Hippo.

MEADVILLE, Pa., July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "The Restless Heart: A Look at the Concept of 'Cor Inquietem (the Restless Heart)' in Saint Augustine of Hippo": an enlightening philosophical and theological work depicting the centrality of the heart in faith. "The Restless Heart" is the creation of published author Father Augustine John Moore, an academically accomplished ordained priest for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe who was born in Mobile, Alabama, and retired in July 2010, after more than half a century of active ministry.

Rev. Moore sets the record straight: "Augustine does not set the heart in opposition to the mind. Nor does he infer either directly or indirectly the exaltation of an irrational emotionalism set up as a standard of truth. It is not enough that the heart, the vital center of a person, bring its influence to bear upon sensual instinct and mind; it must purify and transform itself. Danger threatens it too: isolation—that sentimentality which takes neither the reality of the mind nor that of the body and its senses seriously, that self-glorification of emotion which sets itself up as infallible. The heart can err, perhaps, more profoundly, fatefully, and incorrigibly than the mind or the instincts precisely because it so easily mistakes the immediacy of its experience for truth."

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Augustine John Moore's new book is a beautifully accessible work that draws from the fields of psychology, epistemology, and metaphysics to better understand Saint Augustine's concept and what it means for the reader's life with God.

Rev. Moore satisfies serious seekers of truth by subjecting Augustine's abstract concept to systematic investigation and critical analysis which, far from detracting from the beauty of the concept, throws it into higher light perfectly befitting a subject of such grace.
