Although he was born in what was considered the backwaters of the Roman Empire, Saint Augustine of Hippo has long been renowned for his early religious and philosophical thought. He has been called a Doctor of the Church for his unrivaled ability of patching up even the most complex of theological questions.

    A short, but complete, biography of St. Augustine. It’s interesting to know that even saints can have “colorful” past lives.

    An interesting overview of the life of this very human monk. I can understand his importance in church history since he was one of the first to really think deeply about the key issues of theology. I do not understand however how he qualified to be a saint. I thought saints had to have done miracles or maybe I'm wrong. I am not a catholic and not even religious. Getting back to the book, I like the way it presented his rather licentious early life as almost being a necessary step to his later mor An interesting overview of the life of this very human monk.

    Succinct, no whitewash This brief biography of Augustine presents him as somewhat of an "everyman." He often wills to do good, but finds he hasn't the capacity. Even if you are not of the Roman Catholic faith, or in the catholic church, you can benefit from learning about, and from, this ancient influencer.

    St. Augustine's life was quite a surprise to me.  I'd heard of him being a Doctor of the Faith but did not know that he lived with a woman for 15 years and had a love child.  I thought his struggles in life were certainly interesting and helped him be more compassionate towards other sinners.   St. Augustine's life was quite a surprise to me.  I'd heard of him being a Doctor of the Faith but did not know that he lived with a woman for 15 years and had a love child.  I thought his struggles in life were certainly interesting and helped him be more compassionate towards other sinners.

    Informative A brief synopsis of the life and works of St Augustine. The author did a good job of presenting a thumbnail sketch of Augustine's life in a one hour book.

    A great start to Augustine As usual Hourly History does a great job giving a compelling detailed account in less than 50 pages this Biography of Augustine was the best yet
