Another of Simonetta Carr's beautifully illustrated biographies of great figures of church history, for the young. Besides the major Biblical characters, Augustine of Hippo may well be the most influential man in church history—but too many don't know his story. This is just the right introduction to the life and ministry of Augustine for youthful readers. They'll come to know his personal struggles and the high value he came to place on the Bible and truth. Readers will also see the difficult days in which Augustine lived, amid the turbulent times of the collapse of the Roman Empire.
A vividly illustrated volume, simply written, and packed with fascinating facts. Written for young readers, but sure to capture the interests of the whole family.
"A splendid way to introduce children, and adults too, to one of the most influential Christians who ever lived."
—Phillip S. Cary, Templeton Honors College, Eastern University (author of several books on Augustine)
