The Confessions of St. Augustine
Here is the timeless conflict between good and evil as it is intimately portrayed through the life of Saint Augustine. Discover how he obtained his spiritual growth and unshakable faith.
The Confessions of St. Augustine is the most well-known and influential Christian autobiography in existence. Augustine (354-430 A.D.), who was the Bishop of Hippo in North Africa, lived a wild, hedonistic life prior to his legendary conversion. Confessions is Augustine's first-hand account of his life and conversion, reading like a diary, and it also serves as on ongoing prayer. This edition contains the classic, original translation by Edward Bouverie Pusey. Nothing has been marred or modernized; this is the translation that has been studied for well over a century.
Philosophers and theologians have long admired Augustine's work for its powerful insight, and countless readers have found inspiration and joy in reading about his life's journey from hedonism to peace.
