We are excited to announce the release of Behold My Heart by Josh Congrove. This is a short, accessible, engaging biography of Augustine of Hippo, and it’s the first book Warhorn has published by Josh, an elder at Trinity Reformed Church in Bloomington, Indiana. He studied Augustine’s writings while pursuing his PhD in classics at Indiana University, so he knows what he’s talking about. There are other longer Augustine biographies out there, but we wanted to provide a more readable introduction to the life of a great and humble man. At less than 100 pages, you’ve got no excuse not to check it out!
Behold My Heart is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats. Other ebook formats are available through Apple Books or Barnes & Noble. If you would like to purchase in bulk from Warhorn, please contact us directly. This book would make a great addition to high school curricula covering Augustine and/or the Roman Empire. Classical educators in particular will find the book of interest, as chapter 3 (“Education, Rhetoric, and Teaching”) illustrates what Augustine’s own classical education would have been like.
Josh Congrove walks the reader through Augustine’s childhood, his early career, his conversion to Christianity, and his ministry as pastor and bishop. Behold My Heart opens a window into the heart of a man whose love for God and love for people continue to shape the Western world.
