It may seem odd to devote a whole volume to one short chapter in a not very long work in St Augustine's Confessions, but the text offers special challenges to readers, and as a famous source of controversy in philosophy and theology, it clearly merits line-by-line attention. Bringing the insight and learning that he brought to his previous best selling book on Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (a 272 page book on a speech of only 272 words) Wills presents a new translation and invaluable commentary on Augustine's original text. These early chapters of the Confessions are a source of information on one of the most important relationships in Augustine's life. The book is largely about his son and Wills argues that this is fundamental to the understanding of Augustine's character, theology and worldview.
