This final chapter draws together the arguments discussed in the preceding chapters to build an overall picture of how Augustine describes the operation of grace in his early works, and to address some of the more contentious issues which have risen for scholars concerning its mode of operation. It examines Augustine’s early teaching on grace in relation to his reflection on divine providence, divine admonition, Christology, the role of delight, and its inspiration by the Holy Spirit, thereby demonstrating that he was always anti-Pelagian and always thoroughly ‘Augustinian’.

Keywords: grace; providence; admonition; Christ; Holy Spirit; delight; Pelagius; love
