New edition and revised translation!

Written as a favor for a friend, this “little work” is a wonderful explanation of the Christian faith: a true catechism from which, throughout the history of the church, other catechisms have drawn and learned. Augustine first works his way through the creed, and then the Lord’s Prayer as recorded by Matthew, ending with the sacraments. This is a colossal work in one small volume.

“Harbert provides us with a needed edition that keeps Augustine’s work syntactically streamlined and idiomatic, yet faithful to the original text, and fresh for our time.”
Journal of Early Christian Studies

“Those seeking an excellent introduction either to the thought of the mature Augustine or those needing material for catechetical instructions in the parish would do well to consult this timeless classic.”
Theology Today

“This is a profound presentation of the Faith which can speak as clearly to the faithful now as it did in the fifth century.”
New Oxford Review
