Life of St. Monica - F.A. Forbes - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of Life of St. Monica:

A biography of St. Augustine's Mother.

My favorite quote from St. Monica:

"Nothing is far from God."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you have patience with your children?

How closely do you adhere to your faith?

My review of Life of St. Monica:

A great look into the mother of a great saint.

A short quick biography.

Very intertwined with the life and history of St. Augustine.
