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)

  Augustine of Hippo
Ian Poch, age 10 of Apple Valley, MN, 6/13/2016
I like this book because it tells about Augustine's life and it was very interesting how he wrote a book of his early life. He was so honest about saying everything. He didn't become a Christian until he was a young adult, and the book includes the parts of his past that he wasn't proud of. I like that these biographies have a timeline at the end of the person's life so that I can see what's happening in the person's life.
