A Time For Confidence
Chapter 1 - A Time for Confidence
"Augustine could have this perspective on the collapse of the Roman Empire because he had placed his confidence in the right place. Jerome, on the other hand, had placed his confidence in Caesar. He had confidence in Rome. When that wrong thing was shaken and crumbled, Jerome pulled a Chicken Little and went off into the cave.
In the chapters that follow, we will find the right place to put our confidence." (A Time for Confidence - Stephen J Nichols)
