19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Robert Woods on July 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
While it is best to read a person's book in the language it was originally written, this translation of The Confessions of St. Augustine is for those of us who never learned Latin. The translation by Robert Edmonson is in very readable modern English. Also included are an introduction and notes by Tony Jones that transform this book into a painless introduction to Augustine.

The notes are fantastic. In recent times footnotes have moved from the bottom of each page to the end of books with the result that they are rarely read. Mr. Jones overcomes this difficulty by interspersing his notes within with the text. Most are placed at the end of a passage, helping to make understandable what was just read, but some give needed information for what is to follow.

This method works very well and most should find there is no need to do further research to understand what Augustine is talking about.

Even though separated by more than 1,600 years, anyone will feel an immediate connection with Augustine's feelings and emotions as he tries to explain his innermost thoughts.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was advertized as the "Confessions of St. Augustine" Instead it was a partial translation of the Confessions. I had to order another book to get the completed edition~!
