- On Christian Doctrine Review by Scott
This book is a very effective tool to open the understanding of the interpretaion of Scripture in it's true form. WHile many writers today fill books full of fluff the early church writers were accurate and to the point. I appreciate this project.

- What a tremendous work of awesome... Review by Debra Bouey
What a tremendous work of awesome depth and Godly insight! What a marvelous, Godly scholar Augustine was. Yes, to follow along with the great, brilliant - but wholly surrendered to God - mind and thought of Augustine requires no small measure of focus and concentration ... but it is so worth the effort. As noted, the great central truths of the contextual, accumulative evidences of Scripture shine forth with stunning clarity. I fear too many avoid tackling the works of Church Fathers such as Augustine because they fret over the heavy, scholarly aspect - it is not nearly so heavy and pedantic as some would have you believe. Not to fear, whilst it will require some sincere effort and thought, you will not be disappointed ... for Augustine - brilliant thinker and expresser of thoughts he was - you will have no difficulty hearing the marvelous Biblical truth central to this marvelous work. Truly, Augustine exemplifies the Psalmist here, "In Thy light, we see light." A worthy work and one I cannot possibly recommend highly enough - dive in, you'll be all the wealthier, spiritually speaking, for it!

- Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354... Review by Larry Berman
Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430) Such insight had God given to this man. The text is heavy, verbose and scholarly, but the Central Truth shines with clarity. The truth of the Holy Scripture, that we contend for today, was so articulately declared by saints so long ago. This just confirms that Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
