Growing up in the cultural mecca of fourth-century Rome, Augustine had it all-impressive intellect, good looks, and a wealthy benefactor. But suddenly his whole world was turned upside down. The sport of watching gladiators at the popular Colosseum began to horrify him. Philosophies he once lived by lost their meaning. And a preacher he went to hear on a whim kept drawing him back for more, presenting Scripture as Augustine had never heard. In desperation he finally prayed: "Help me, O Lord, to find You." Discover how one man's search for truth led him to the "unchangeable Light" of Jesus Christ, the ultimate love of his life. Augustine-the beloved Saint Augustine-was called to devote himself to building the early church just a few centuries after Jesus Himself walked the earth. Saint Augustine's commitment was not without sacrifice, not without struggle. His brave confessions inspire us to know God-and fall more deeply in love with Him- here in the twenty-first century.

One of the greatest of the early Christian thinkers, Augustine (354-430) left a body of writing and philosophy that still influences Christians today. Reared by a godly mother, Augustine turned his back on her teachings during this years of schooling. Contemporary philosophies, however, could not help him during a time of spiritual crisis, and Augustine returned to his roots, embracing Christianity. Augustine's writings, including the autobiographical Confessions, and his monumental theology The City of God, are still read and studied more than fifteen hundred years after his death.
