"The Enchiridion, literally meaning a book one holds in the hand, is the mature thought of unquestionably one of the most influential theologians of the western church, St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430).
Augustine discusses the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love. . . . Those seeking an excellent introduction either to the thought of the mature Augustine or those needing material for catechetical instruction in the parish would do well to consult this timeless classic."

The Augustine Catechism: The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Love by Saint Augustine.
New edition and revised translation! Written as a favor for a friend, this little work is a wonderful explanation of the Christian faith: a true catechism from which, throughout the history of the church, other catechisms have drawn and learned. Augustine first works his way through the creed, and then the Lords Prayer as recorded by Matthew, ending with the sacraments. This is a colossal work in one small volume.
