Tolle Lege 2014-2015

Tolle Lege

The name of our faculty commentary series is Tolle Lege in honor of St. Augustine. These Latin words were the chant of children playing in a garden one day adjacent to where the decidedly “non saint” Augustine was relaxing and reading. The words rang out as a clarion call by God for him to “take it and read.” Looking about, he found a Bible next to him opened to Paul’s letter to the Romans. The text of scripture touched his conscience, heart, and soul, reducing him to tears of repentance under a fig tree. God the Holy Spirit used that combination of events to call Augustine to faith in Christ. His conversion ultimately had a dramatic impact upon the next millennium of world and church history.
