The Augustine Catechism: The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Charity ( Augustine (New City Press) #1 )



by Saint Augustine of Hippo (Author), Boniface Ramsey, (Editor), Bruce Harbert, (Translator)


A true catechism from which, throughout the history of the church, other catechisms have drawn and learned including the recent Catechism of the Catholic Church which quotes Augustine extensively. Within the context of the three theological virtues, faith, hope and love, Augustine masterfully covers the faith. He first works his way through the creed and then the Lords prayer as recorded by Matthew, ending with the sacraments.
