Ex-Library; 8vo; 299 pages; "It is odd to think that in the Christian Church of North Africa men even so early as the year 250 could look back to the good old times when Christians really were Christians. Persucution followed by relaxation had almost destroyed the morale of the Christians. But St. Cyprian was the newly appointed Bishop of Carthage and the glory of St. Augustine was a century and a half in the future. Cardinal Newman chooses this as the moment of his novel and makes those our remote ancestors-in-the- faith live again. ."
