Augustine's Relic: Lessons from the Oldest Book in England
Spending time with the St Augustine's Gospels, believed to be the oldest non-archeological object in Great Britain, Smith uses this great volume as a starting point for a contemporary conversation on communication, unity, and continuity. How does the church find that connection with its past, its present, and its future? How do we share the Good News using today's media, and how do we learn more about that process by considering vellum and quills? A wonderful story-teller, Smith moves seamlessly between the medieval world and the modern.
