"City of God" XVI.17-20

Chapter 17:
Even early on, the city of man was divided into powerful empires in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Chapter 18-19:
God made promises to Abraham, which given Abraham's deceit (and God's merciful preservation of Abraham and Sarah despite that deceit) leads us to conclude that these promises were not based on Abraham's character, but rather on God's.

Chapter 20:
Which isn't to say Abraham had no Christian virtue, given the kindness with which he treated Lot on their parting.
