Summary

Written as a favor for a friend, this "little work" is a wonderful explanation of Christian faith. It is a true catechism from which others, including the recent catechism of the Catholic Church, have been drawn. Within the context of the three theological virtues -- faith, hope, and love -- Augustine masterfully covers the faith. He first works his way through the creed, and then the Lords prayer as recorded by Matthew, and he ends with the sacraments. This is a magnus work in a small volume. The Augustine Catechism is the first book in a new series from NCP In it the classical jewels of this great saint will be made available for study and enjoyment in small, affordable paperbacks.
