Believers and atheists often find it difficult to see how Christian faith coheres with real life, to the point that we feel forced to choose between one or the other, and cannot have both. Saint Augustine helps us see that this is a false choice. Far from limiting or biasing our thinking, faith strengthens and accompanies it. Christian existence is not diminished existence, but truth and life together. The aim of this presentation is to understand how.
