THE AUGUSTINE STORY begins with Augustine leaving his home for Rome to be a great intellectual teacher. His mother, Monica, in the meantime prays constantly for Augustine.
In Rome, Augustine’s reputation as a great debater gets him placed as the Emperor’s spokesperson in Milan, the capitol city at the time. The Emperor’s manipulative mother sends Augustine to destroy the Christian Bishop Ambrose’s influence over the people. As Augustine seeks to find arguments to use against Ambrose, the Emperor’s mother prepares to take over Ambrose’s church by force. All they need Augustine to do is convince the people that Ambrose is a fake.
However, Augustine decides to stand for the church against the empire. He loses his position as the Emperor’s spokesperson and is soon converted to Christianity. The influence of his teaching and preaching grows and affects the whole world.
