Augustine delivers his Rule: sculpture in St Peter's,
Pavia, in Italy
THIS book by Margaret Miles is an autobiography with a

one in which she grew up as the child of a certain type of
Christian believer. Augustine and the Fundamentalist's
Daughter shows, too, how her own thought has developed
over the years, as she has matured and formed her own habits of
mind (The Lutterworth Press, £17.75; 978-0-7188-9262-3).

by Authentic Media at £7.99 (£7.20);
