"Spirituality involves taking our personal experience seriously as raw material for redemption and holiness, examining the material of our daily lives with as much rigor as we do Scripture and doctrine. The Confessions is the landmark work in this exercise."

Meet the Author

Saint Augustine

Saint Augustine was born to a Catholic mother and a pagan father on November 13, 354, at Tagasta, near Algiers. He studied Latin literature and later taught rhetoric in Rome and Milan. He originally joined the Manicheans, a religious sect, but grew unhappy with some of their philosophies. He soon turned to Christianity and was baptized in 386. One of Augustine's major goals was a single, unified church. He was ordained a priest in 391 and appointed Bishop of Hippo, in Roman Africa, in 396, His writings and arguments with other sects include the Donatists and the Pelagians. On the Trinity, The City of God, and On Nature and Grace are some of his important writings. Confessions, which is considered his masterpiece, is an autobiographical work that recounts his restless youth and details the spiritual experiences that led him to Christianity. Many of Augustine's ideas, such as those concerning sin and predestination, became integral to the doctrines of the Church. Augustine died on August 28, 430AD.

Amazing
4 stars By Charles, May 16 2013
The Confessions of Augustine are an absolute classic work that has stood the test of time. It is thoroughly astonishing how much of what he writes still holds true and resounds with our culture today, I often forgot this book is 1600 years old. However, the actually writing reminds you that it is actually this old. Be prepared to be bombarded with 'thous', 'thees' and 'hasts'. The text is also very small, which makes the book seem smaller than it actually is. It's a big one. But worth it! Sometimes it feels like mining through coal to get to gold, but there is a lot of gold in there. His insights are very wise. Just keep reading through this book, it's difficult at points, but worth it in the end.
