Gregory Recommends Augustine

Here's one of my favorite quotes in Pope Gregory's letters so far:
Writing to an African Prefect:

"As to your wishing the book on the exposition of holy Job to be sent to you [written by Gregory].... if you desire to be satiated with delicious food, read the works of the blessed Augustine, your countryman, and seek not our chaff in comparison with his fine wheat."  (Letters, book 10, letter 37).
