Handbook On Faith Hope And Love
The Enchiridion, Manual, or Handbook of Augustine of Hippo is alternatively titled, Faith, Hope, and Love. The Enchiridion is a compact treatise on Christian piety, written in response to a request by an otherwise unknown person, named Laurentius, shortly after the death of Saint Jerome in 420. It is intended as a model for Christian instruction or catechesis.
Written after 420 C.E. to a man named Laurence, this wonderful book by St. Augustine is a short treatise on the proper mode of worshipping God. Following 1 Corinthians 13, St. Augustine describes true worship of God through faith, hope, and love. In thirty-three small chapters, St. Augustine's description of true worship covers all the major ideas of the Christian religion, providing new and interesting insights on each idea.
