We know that the influence of a mother on her son can be of great importance. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) has been described as the greatest of the Church Fathers. Not only this but the many writings of this African have influenced almost every sphere of Western thought. Yet if it wasn't for the faithful witness of his mother, Monica, Augustine may have remained a clever-tongued middle-class playboy rather than a giant of church history. Dolina MacCuish has traced the influences on Augustine's life and tells the fascinating story of how an elitist philosopher, born into a well-to-do family in North Africa, familiar with the sophistication of Rome and Milan, was humbled to an acceptance of his childhood faith. This is an exciting story of faithful witness overcoming the cynicism of the world.^^
