The Christian Philosophy of St. Augustine. Etienne Gilson, translated by L. E.M. Lynch. New York: Octagon Books, 1988. The best general introduction to Augustine. Although sometimes inaccurate in its presentation of the details of Augustine's thought, it captures the spirit of his thinking.
Guide to the Study of Saint Augustine. Eugéne Portaliè, translated by Ralph J. Bastian, introduction by Vernon J. Bourke. London: Burns & Oates, 1960. A useful corrective to some of Gilson's mistakes, especially regarding the doctrine of illumination. Generally accurate as to details, at least on the purely philosophical issues, but completely missing the spirit of Augustine's thought.
