Book Description


The Church has numerous fathers who have influenced its dogma in substantial ways. Although none of them can be singled out as the most pivotal theologian of Church history, it can certainly be said that Saint Augustine of Hippo has long been a central figure to Christian thought, informing both on the nature of God and the nature of Christian morality.

He has been quoted throughout the ages by important Christian writers, such as Saint Thomas Aquinas, and has been listed as a strong influence by Pope Benedict XVI. Through his central place in the history of Christianity, some historians have appointed Saint Augustine particularly great importance in European and World history. 

They have called him the last man of the Classical Age, and the first medieval man.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but typos galore! March 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I found the book an interesting and helpful read, the abundance of typos were very disappointing and distracting. For instance, the 'n' was left off heaven, and 'to' spelled as 'ro'. 'Labored' was spelled as 'laobored'. Somebody rushed the electronic version or didn't bother to proofread. There are many more mistakes which unfortunately detracts from enjoying the book. If it had been a free download I would not bother to complain, but come on. Somebody needs to go back and proofread this book! I'll update to five stars if the glaring mistakes are corrected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very nice book about St. Augustine of Hippo. It's divided into two sections. The first is an introduction to the man who, like all of us, is anything but perfect. We follow Augustine on his journey as he comes to know God. The second part contains a treasury of prayers to help us on our own journey. This is the third "Life and Prayers " book by Wyatt North and I have them all. I found this one particularly interesting because St. Augustine is my patron saint. I highly recommend this book and look forward to all future books about Saints.

Format:Kindle Edition
Wyatt North's series of lives of the Catholic Saints is a Great way to get some insight into great hearts. Everything put in the most positive terms. The prayers written by the saints themselves are a particular treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book August 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We always hear about the great Saint Augustine and his mother Saint Monica but I didn't really know that much about him. I recommend this book for everyone. I also really like the list of prayers in the 2nd part of book. Who wouldn't benefit by having some prayers on their kindle?

The Life and Prayers of St. Augustine is a wonderful introduction to his life. It does not get bogged down in dates, etc. that make it feel like a history lesson. Thus, it is easy reading and not over-whelming to the average reader. I love the prayers as well at the end of the book. Wyatt North is putting out some wonderful books for e-readers and I have been downloading their books recently and have been very pleased with their efforts and look forward to their future publications.

What can one say? This is an outstanding contribution to Catholic liturature. The introduction to the life of St. Augustine is short yet covers all the important elements of the life of this great Saint and Doctor of the Church. What follows is a compendium of prayers which can either be said everyday or when the occasion strikes you. The prayers are beautifully written and extremely inspiring. I would highly recommend this work to anyone who wishes to enrich their spiritual life.

5.0 out of 5 stars intro to Saint Augustine
If you like to know who Saint Augustine is, please read this book. Saint Augustine is too big for a ordinary man to digest. This book is a good introduction.
