"...the ideas of this man furnished the themes for the piety and theology of more than a thousand years. No one possessed the "whole" Augustine, but all lived upon the fragments of his spirit from which each appropriated and understood what was "adapted" to his own wants." --Reinhold Seeberg

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.

The Enchiridion is a briefer treatise on the grace of God and represents Augustine’s fully matured theological perspective—after the magnificent achievements of the De Trinitate and the greater part of the De civitate Dei, and after the tremendous turmoil of the Pelagian controversy in which the doctrine of grace was the exact epicenter. Sometime in 421, Augustine received a request from one Laurentius, a Christian layman who was the brother of the tribune Dulcitius (for whom Augustine wrote the De octo dulcitii quaestionibus in 423–425). This Laurentius wanted a handbook (enchiridion) that would sum up the essential Christian teaching in the briefest possible form. Augustine dryly comments that the shortest complete summary of the Christian faith is that God is to be served by man in faith, hope, and love. Aeterna Press

"The Enchiridion, Manual, or Handbook of Augustine of Hippo is alternatively titled, "Faith, Hope, and Love". The Enchiridion is a compact treatise on Christian piety, written in response to a request by an otherwise unknown person, named Laurentius, shortly after the death of Saint Jerome in 420. It is intended as a model for Christian instruction or catechesis.As the title indicates, the work is organized according to the three graces necessary for the Christian worship of God: Faith, Hope and Love. Under Faith, Augustine explains the use of the Apostles' Creed, in teaching Christian doctrine and in refuting heresies. Under Hope, he briefly explains the Lord's Prayer as a model of Christian prayer. The final part is a discourse on Christian love." - Wikipedia

Sexual deviant. Renowned convert. Philosophical heavyweight. Few figures in Christian history have been as influential-and intriguing-as Augustine of Hippo. The fourth-century North African bishop famously converted to the priesthood from a self-proclaimed life of decadence. From that point onward, grace permeated the life of this theological giant, and his passion for God bleeds into every page of his Handbook on Faith, Hope, and Love. Book jacket.

Written as a favor for a friend, this “little work” of Saint Augustine is a wonderful explanation of the Christian faith, a true catechism. From it other catechisms throughout the history of the Church have sprung up, including the recent “Catechism of the Catholic Church,” which quotes Augustine extensively. Within the context of the three theological virtues -- faith, hope, and love -- Augustine masterfully covers Christian beliefs. He extensively comments on the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer as recorded by Matthew, and the sacraments. This is a colossal work in one small volume.
