On Christian Doctrine, also known as On Christian Teaching, consists of four books written by Saint Augustine of Hippo on the interpretation and the teaching of the Scriptures. The first three books were published in 397 AD and the forth in 426 AD. It sets various tasks to Christian teachers and preachers, i.e. to discover the truth of the Scriptures; to teach the truth from the Scriptures; and to defend Scripture when it is attacked.

About the Author
Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis, AD 354-430, was Bishop of Hippo Regius. He was a philosopher and theologian from Roman Africa. St. Jerome, his contemporary, said: "He established anew the ancient Faith," and scholars have since recognized him as the most important figure in how the tenets of the Church are taught. He stands as a powerful advocate for orthodoxy and the bishops, seeing in them the means for dispensing saving grace, and serves as a bridge between the ancient and medieval worlds. St. Augustine said: "Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you."
