For the sake of clarity the dialogue is rendered in modern form, eliminating all the "I said," "he said," and putting the initials of the debaters instead. This first bilingual edition of On Order shows the Latin side-by-side with the translation for easy reference."--Jacket.

Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Published Date: 1999

The premier line of Classic literature from the greatest Christian authors. The finest in quality and value. Never underestimate the power of prayer. As Monica, the mother of St. Augustine, watched as her son and grandson were being baptized on that bright easter morning in A.D.387, she knew her lifelong prayers had been answered. Even though in his Confessions, Augustine wrote about his early life as an example of how sin grows and works within a person, he was looking back over those early years with the vision of a bishop of the church. Monica could not have known that those prayers would have presented to the church a man who would impact Christianity with the strength that Augustine did.

At breakfast, then, it would befall that Sister Jane would say:
