"City of God" XXI.4

Chapter 4:
Augustine walks through a number of examples of unique physical characteristics that seem improbable (and indeed probably are from a modern perspective), but which nevertheless suggest that God can create a body that can endure whatever He wishes it to. "The truth is that God, who has endowed things with such a marvelous variety of marvelous qualities that their multitude no longer astonishes us, can give to the substance of flesh that qualities requisite for existence in the world to come."
