IT IS THE YEAR 597 and Pope Gregory is sending a select number of his monks, led by Fr. Augustine, to re-evangelize England. Young Wolf, born in that land but raised in Rome, accompanies his father, Wolfstan, who goes as a guide and interpreter. Though the King of Kent's wife is a Christian, the missionaries from Rome do not know whether they will be welcomed, tolerated or martyred. In a story full of adventure, Wolf meets Fritha, a Saxon girl whose life and destiny are soon closely bound up with his own. Events, significant in the history of Christianity, are vividly brought to life by this veteran writer of historical fiction.

"Augustine Came to Kent has been a staple ever since I found it, years ago, in a used book store. The children love it because it is an interesting and readable story; I love it because it brings to life an early period of Church evangelization. There was once a wealth of historical material for children. In recent years this has not been true, and those of us who are home educators have had to search, often in vain, for 'living' history resources. Augustine Came to Kent is one of these treasures, and it is now back in print, thanks to Bethlehem Books."
