This review is from: Augustine: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
Really great book, excellent for an introduction to Augustine and north African church history in general. Also great for people who are interested but don't want to go in-depth and have no intention of reading further.
Chadwick's style really makes the book, he writes with such wit and makes Augustine sound like a real-life person - something we rarely think of historical figures as being! I recommend Chadwick's book on "The Early Church".
