Editorial Reviews

Review


"An excellent translation."--John Bowlin, University of Tulsa


"A masterly performance by the dean of English-speaking Patristic scholars. Better English than the Penguin and unlike Sheed this has Books X-XIII. The notes hint at hidden depths."--Oliver Nicholson, University of Minnesota


"Chadwick's translation is superb."--Thomas Renna, Saginaw Valley State University


"A beautifully translated, edited, and printed paperback edition."--Francis W. Nichols, St. Louis University


"I am impressed with this translation. It has the poetry and emotive power of the R.S. Pine-Coffin translation for Penguin Books; and it seems much more lucid. The notes are very helpful for my purposes, showing how Augustine wove together Neo-Platonism and Christianity."--David E. Timmer, Central College


"An extremely readable and accessible translation, superior to those of Edward Pusey and F.J. Sheed that we've used in the past."--Helen Moritz, Santa Clara University


"A very competent piece of work....The fact remains that this new translation is the most readable version in modern English."--Manuscripta


"This handsomely bound and printed volume is finely translated and annotated, thus making the Confessions as exciting to read in English as they deserve to be. The informative introduction provides excellent information on Augustine's life and writings."--Gary M. Godfrey, University of Utah


"Fine translation."--P.M. Hess, University of Santa Clara


Review


"Chadwick's translation is superb." -Church History


"If the Latin is a "work of high art", so is this translation."-The Times


"A masterpiece beyond classification."-Church Times


"...Chadwick has the gift for being able to pinpoint significant, as well as sometimes unfamiliar aspects of the life of the church: and in this respect his footnotes in the present volume do not disappoint us."-Expository Times


"Excellent translation ... this new translation is the most readable version in modern English"-Vernon J. Bourke, Saint Louis University


"It is a great pleasure to welcome a translation of the Confessions from one who is both a scholar and a lover of Augustine. There is a concise but very informative introduction, and a bibliography which will be extremely helpfull to the students who wants to read some of the work of Augustine's contemporaries in extenso. The translation itself is clear and accessible ... of available English version, this offers the most comprehensive identification of scriptural allusions in the text."-Rowan Williams, Journal of Theological Studies
