Message 3, Barbarians at the Gate:

As Augustine lay dying, the Vandals were at the gates of his city, Hippo. Several years earlier, another barbarian tribe had sacked Rome. It seemed that the whole world was coming apart. Augustine, however, trusted God. In this session, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey describes how Christians can live faithfully even in overwhelming, discouraging, and seemingly hopeless circumstances. Dr. Godfrey points out what God’s faithfulness means for us, and how we can have hope even when we find ourselves in the direst straits.
