Review:

THE AUGUSTINE STORY is an animated movie for children that comes from The Torchlighters series from the Christian History Institute and Vision Video. The Torchlighters series is a compilation of short movies that help teach children and families about Christian heroes in history.
THE AUGUSTINE STORY begins with Augustine leaving his home for Rome to be a great intellectual teacher. His mother, Monica, in the meantime prays constantly for Augustine.
In Rome, Augustine’s reputation as a great debater gets him placed as the Emperor’s spokesperson in Milan, the capitol city at the time. The Emperor’s manipulative mother sends Augustine to destroy the Christian Bishop Ambrose’s influence over the people. As Augustine seeks to find arguments to use against Ambrose, the Emperor’s mother prepares to take over Ambrose’s church by force. All they need Augustine to do is convince the people that Ambrose is a fake.
However, Augustine decides to stand for the church against the empire. He loses his position as the Emperor’s spokesperson and is soon converted to Christianity. The influence of his teaching and preaching grows and affects the whole world.
THE AUGUSTINE STORY is a fantastic short video for children. It teaches children about history and great biblical lessons for life. The video is written and animated in a very entertaining way that even adults will enjoy. Filled with humor, suspense and good lessons, THE AUGUSTINE STORY has no objectionable content and is a great video for the whole family. The DVD contains a huge bonus, an insightful 58-minute documentary about Augustine, including further information about his mother, Monica, Bishop Ambrose and Augustine’s conversion to Christianity.
