The Augustine Sampler
About the set
The Augustine Sampler includes:
- The Confessions: Augustine undertook his greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The book in fact is an extended poetic, passionate and intimate prayer. Bishop Barron says Maria Boulding’s translation “reads like a novel.
- The City of God, Abridged Edition: Along with his Confessions, The City of God is undoubtedly St. Augustine's most influential work; however, at over 900 pages, the complete City of God can be daunting to try to read. This wonderful abridged edition, using the magnificent English translation of William Braddock, is “highly recommended...for individual students, clergy, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject."- Midwest Book Review
