Reading Augustine

Jason Byassee

$29.99

Paperback
The 'Confessions' of St. Augustine is one of the few Christian classics that is still widely read in the secular academy. Yet, oddly enough, it is not often read in the manner Augustine appears to have intended and in which the church read it for centuries: as a model of conversion, devotion, friendship, and the love of God. This book is a companion for any reader of the Confessions -- whether in an academic, ecclesial, or devotional context -- informed by the latest scholarship yet always directed toward pushing the reader, with Augustine, toward God.
