Bourke does a wonderful job summarizing Augustine's theology on a wide range of issues: God, the Trinity, the church, etc. It is organized by topic, with a short introduction to each topic. It draws on a much wider selection of his writings than most people will have read.

The only drawback is due to the nature of Augustine's prose. Because he has a very particular manner of writting and ensures that the reader follows, passages can be awkward out of context and prevents it from being a quick read. But then again, should Augustine really be a 'quick read'?

A very good collection of topically-arranged excerpts from Augustine. The man was dreadfully important, and wrote copiously. I found this collection useful both as a synthesis of his thoughts, and as a "diving off point" for further study.

The quality of the print was so poor that it appeared blurry. The paper was also poor quality. I do not recommend the book based on the physical appearance.
