Product Description

Before he was a famous saint, Augustine was a notorious sinner. He wandered from the faith and, after a dramatic spiritual transformation in his thirties, returned to become a bishop and theologian in the early church. The short, daily meditations in Day by Day with Saint Augustine are candid reflections on the challenges to living a life of faith from someone who experienced the pitfalls. His wisdom is timeless, his words are profound, and his message ever relevant.

Day by Day with Saint Augustine includes meditations for each day of the year. Each one consists of a short quote from Augustine followed by a reflection by Fr. Burt. They cover many of the daily experiences we all have such as living a life of hope, falling in love, facing death, and dealing with difficult people.

Editorial Reviews

These are practical, intelligent thoughts for both understanding and living the Christian message offered in a daily does from the well of thought of a great spiritual master and his modern interpreter.
Catholic Library World

Fr. Donald X. Burt is on a very short list of the finest biblical and patristic spirituality writers in the Church of the last half century. He has rendered a tremendous service to the Church in making St. Augustine accessible to the person unable to pore through his voluminous writings. Fr. Burt’s penetrating, down-to-earth style is music to the reader’s ear and heart. Free of ideological tentacles and platitudes, his writings address many of today’s pressing personal, relational, and pastoral issues. His books are ideal for spiritual reading as well as lectio divina, the Church’s model of holistic, contemplative reading that continues to assume greater prominence in Catholic life. Having read his books since the early 1980s, I can attest to their fresh, enduring qualities and their uncanny capacity to speak to the needs of the day. Very highly and personally recommended.
Karl A. Schultz, National Speaker and author of eleven books

This is an excellent book for those who are searching a new light in their lives, and want to follow the steps of Christ through the interpretation of Saint Augustine.
Indicaciones

Perfect for the night table or beside your favorite chair in the rectory.
Crux of the News

The book is strongly recommended for anyone wishing to know Augustine and to grow spiritually with him as guide.
Catholic Studies An Online Journal

Augustine and his commentator have shared their wisdom generously and readers will be grateful.
Prairie Messenger

. . . A pattern of acknowledging human frailty while expressing encouragement and hope runs throughout Fr. Burt’s current work, making it a valuable resource to keep close at hand.
WritingWorks

When speaking about his own theology and spirituality, Pope Benedict XVI calls St. Augustine “my master.” In Day by Day with St. Augustine Fr. Don Burt makes the theology and spirituality of the great bishop of Hippo available and accessible to all readers. With his judicious selection and compelling translations of texts from the vast corpus of Augustine’s writings, and by his masterful commentaries, one of today’s leading Augustinian scholars invites us through the liturgical calendar to learn from the most influential of early Christian writers.
Joseph T. Kelley, Merrimack College, North Andover, MA
