Paperback. Good. The setting of the book is the fourth century; the theme of the story is timeless. A man addicted to the "liberated" life-style with accompanying indulgence in cultish influences & pride in intellectual achievements; A devout, praying mother whose concern for her son never ended; The persistent, sometimes subtle, influences from Christians who commanded his respect; A reversal in life's direction through the grace of God. Augustine, the transformed prodigal, capsulized his story & ours: "You have made us for yourself, O God, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in You."
