Adolescent urges. Gang member. Loving, unwed father. Cult membership. High ambition fueled by a powerful mother. Mystical visions. Born again conversion. Who knew that being a priest, bishop, Father of the Church was in his future?

One of the chapters on memory even matches up with contemporary cognitive neuroscience.

Far from "political correctness", Sr. Boulding's English translation is among the most accurate available today. Any Latin freshman knows that "homo" is the term for "human person", and that is why Sr. Boulding rightly translates the term as she does throughout. Latin for "man" is "vir" which Augustine rarely employs because he is talking about the relationship between God and all humans, not just those who happen to be of the XY chromosome. If one really wants to let Augustine "ring true", as this reviewer suggests, learn your Latin! If those days have passed you by, read this edition!!
Fr. Meconi, S.J.

This is one of the great classics of the Catholic Tradition. Augustine's Confession is the story of everyman and their struggle for truth. This book will change you life!

I am dazzled by this book. Many of the cliches surrounding Christianity are not in here. In fact there are many similarities to Eastern traditions and the color of the devoltional longing of St Augustine sizzle with love like a fried egg in Gods cooking pan.

One muse... The barbarians who stormed Rome, and terrified St Augustine, used the Germanic word 'God', when the Greeks and the Latins used the word 'Devus'. Strange as it sounds, the word 'God' is actually alien to St Augustine! So St Augustine would be amused that his works are translated with that foreign word uttered by those barbarians storming the forum and carrying off the girls!

He'll be smiling down, I am sure.

Augustine is one of the most important figures in the development of western Christian thought. After a pivotal conversion as an adult, he was baptized in 387, ordained to the priesthood in 391 and appointed bishop of Hippo in 395.
So great was his faith, Catholic, Anglican, and Eastern Orthodox churches, consider him a saint. The Protestant Church considers him to be one of the fathers of the Protestant Reformation.

Required reading in college, 40 years latter after reading it again, I now greatly appreciate The Confessions of Saint Augustine.
