'Three main subjects are discussed in this volume. The first is Augustine's classic work on the Trinity. In this work we see Augustine at his best. 'On the Spirit and the Letter' is the subject of the second section. It gives a positive statement of Augustine's understanding of Paul. 'Homilies on the First Epistle of St. John' is the subject of the third division. The messages of this third division exhibit Augustine's powers as a preacher. These three masterpieces make stimulating reading.' -- 'Southern Presbyterian Journal'
