Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Augustine never thought of God without thinking of his sin, nor of his sin without thinking of Christ."

St. Augustine grates hard against "the anatomy of evil" while dealing succinctly and honestly with his own proneness toward sin.  From his infatuation with its initial beauty to the discounting of his previously wasted life, Augustine leaves little to the imagination regarding his need to be saved from himself.

Most of Augustine's Confessions are spent in a nearly catastrophic tug-of-war.  From insult and injury to passion, lost love, and the arts--this work leads through and beyond a world where God's timing is absolutely perfect.

Nothing has really changed since then.  Sin is still sin--and God is still God.

About the Author

AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO (354-430) was one of the foremost philosopher-theologians of early Christianity and the leading figure in the church of North Africa. He became bishop of Hippo in 396 and held that position until his death. Before becoming a Christian, Augustine lived a very secular life. His mother Monica prayed for him diligently and at age 32, during a trip to Milan, Augustine heard the preaching of St. Ambrose, was convicted by the Holy Spirit, and became a Christian. His numerous written works, the most important of which are his Confessions and City of God, shaped the practice of biblical exegesis and helped lay the foundation for much of medieval and modern Christian thought.

It is a rather difficult read but I believe this classic is worth it. Not a book for a person who likes light and/or fun reading. Much more for the reflective person.

This book is an excellent portrayal of the beliefs of the early Christians (Catholics) before the splintering of new denominations.
