Augustine of Hippo, Saint: The Enchiridion [On Faith, Hope & Love], v.1, 16 June 2008

The Enchiridion [Handbook on Faith, Hope and Love].
Translated by J.F. Shaw.
From Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, First Series, Vol. 3. Edited by Philip Schaff. (Buffalo, NY: Christian Literature Publishing Co., 1887.)

St. Augustine speaks of this book in his Retractations, l. ii. c. 63, as follows:
I also wrote a book on Faith, Hope, and Charity, at the request of the person to whom I addressed it, that he might have a work of mine which should never be out of his hands, such as the Greeks call an Enchiridion (Handbook). There I think I have pretty carefully treated of the manner in which God is to be worshipped, which knowledge divine Scripture defines to be the true wisdom of man. The book begins: I cannot express, etc.

Contains discussions about evil, error and some speculation about angels. There are interesting views about an afterlife. Conjoined twins will be resurrected with separate bodies.
