Reviews - What do customers think about Augustine Day by Day: Minute Meditations for Every Day Taken from the Writings of Saint Augustine (Spiritual Life Series)?
Little book, good food. Feb 22, 2008
Though both have value, which is the greater part in the eyes of God? The body or the soul? We feed our bodies at least an hour or more every day, but what do we do to feed our souls? I read at least an hour or more every day from the Bible and a half dozen other spiritual writings. While this book pales in comparison to other books I'm reading, for its genre--meditative quotes for each day of the year--it's the best in my opinion. The insightful quotes are concise and deep, and makes you think. It's perfect for people who make little time during the day to feed their souls--and in a case like that, any food to a starving soul is good food. And in my opinion this is the best "fast food for the soul" I've personally come across. And as St. Augustine is one of the saints whom most Christian denominations respect, I've given this as a gift to many of my Protestant friends. Everyone I've given this too has enjoyed it. I highly recommend this book. In my opinion it's good food even for those who read a lot and even to those who read little, and is a good tool for evangelization.
Relevant to Life May 9, 2004
Even though we often overlook the fact, Augustine is full of common-sense, every day spiritual instruction. That's what makes this book so valuable in the end. Every daily meditation contains a selection from Augustine, followed by a prayer.
This compact book is bound in brown faux leather, containing one purple ribbon for keeping place. The printing is attractive, with standard Catholic Book Publishing fonts. The cover is relatively plain save the title and a decorative cross. It's a rather attractive book, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a minute or two daily with St. Augustine.
Spiritual wisdom Dec 2, 1999
Timeless spiritual wisdom from one of history's great thinkers, succinctly organized by the editor. Each daily reading is a couple of sentences long, followed by a sentence-long prayer. A great way to begin the day or to use for meditation.
