  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Rebecca West
  • " This Thomas More Press Book to Live edition published in 1982 by
    the Thomas More Press "
  • Copyright © 1933, by D. Appleton and Company

" This second in the recently revived Thomas More Press Book to Live series of Catholic classics is about one of the most intriguing and influential figures in the history of Christianity and is written by one of the greatest of contemporary English writers-Dame Rebecca West. "

" As Dr. William Herr says in Catholic Thinkers in the Clear: "More is known about the life of Augustine than about the life of any other early Christian writer, primarily because in the midst of an incredibly active career he somehow found the time to write his life story, the Confessions, thereby inventing autobiography as a literary form. It was quite a life.
Augustine was Thomas Merton, Thomas More, and Thomas Aquinas all rolled into one, with touches of Thomas Hobbes and Thomas Jefferson thrown in. " "

" But, according to Rebecca West, "we must not take the Confessions as altogether faithful to reality. It is too subjectively true to be objectively true. There are things in Augustine's life which he could not bear to think of at all, or very much, or without falsification, so the Confessions are not without gaps, understatements and mistatements. " "

" And it is to filling in these gaps, looking with keenly objective eyes at those things which Augustine chose not to see, recreating the complex, passionate, brilliant, flawed, but ultimately great and saintly man that Augustine was that Rebecca West dedicates herself in this surpassingly readable and memorable biography. "

" England's brilliant novelist, essayist and critic, Dame Rebecca West wrote this superbly perceptive and readable life of St. Augustine in 1933. Like its subject, it is timeless and, in fact, by virtue of its author's celebrated acuity and literary style, could have been written yesterday. "

This book is in very good to excellent condition with minor wear, but the dust jacket has several tears and is worn around the edges.
No torn or ripped pages.
There are two stamps of a church name and address on the first blank page.
No other markings or writing.
