Review:

“A splendid way to introduce children-and adults too-to one of the most influential Christians who ever lived.” Phillip S. Cary, Scholar in Residence at the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University, and author of several books on Augustine

“Few figures in Western history are as important as Augustine. He is one of the early church fathers to whom the Reformers rightly looked as an inspiration for their theology and piety in many respects but he is more than that. He is an old and dear friend. Simonetta Carr has produced a clear, readable introduction to the life and work of this great Christian and our old friend.” R. Scott Clark, Professor of Church History and Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California

"In this book, Simonetta Carr introduces young readers to Augustine's life and spiritual ministry. Readers will learn about the personal conflicts Augustine faced as he discovered the high value of the Bible and the truth. They will also experience the difficult days Augustine lived, learning much from his disputes with false teachers, as well as the turbulent times of the fall of the Roman Empire. This volume is accurately illustrated and simply written to attract the reader's attention to the interesting facts of St. Augustine's life. Written for ages 7-12, it can capture the interest of the whole family." (Associazione Storico Culturale Sant'Agostino, Italy - translated from Italian).
