Written as a favor for a friend, this distillation of the essentials of the faith has influenced educators for centuries. "Those seeking an excellent introduction to the thought of the mature Augustine or those needing material for catechetical instructions in the parish would do well to consult this timeless classic,"---Theology Today. 144 pages, softcover. New City.
New edition and revised translation Written as a favor for a friend, this little work is a wonderful explanation of the Christian faith: a true catechism from which, throughout the history of the church, other catechisms have drawn and learned. Augustine first works his way through the creed, and then the Lords Prayer as recorded by Matthew, ending with the sacraments. This is a colossal work in one small volume.
