Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The latest volume in the series "Augustine for the Twenty-First Century," which will offer the first complete translation of all of Augustine's works into English, adds yet another vision of the Confessions to the many already available. The fourth-century bishop of Hippo in North Africa wrote this extended prayer, the first true autobiography, to confess his sins and God's goodness. It has been a standard of spiritual literature ever since. Boulding (Marked for Life, Abingdon, 1996), a Benedictine nun of Stanbrook Abbey, England, offers us a fine, smooth translation that is a pleasure to read. Hers is also the first English translation to use inclusive language. There is a complete index, which greatly enhances the usefulness of this particular volume. For all readers.?Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J.

From the Back Cover

They that seek shall find him, and those who find shall praise him.

The first autobiography ever written, Augustine's Confessions ranks amoung the most profound books in history. But it's more than that; this testament shows how God gives rest to the weary and hope to the hopeless. 

 “This book is the masterpiece from which all other Christian memoirs flow. Augustine’s astonishing story remains as fresh as it did when he wrote it in the late fourth century. The Confessions still speaks with a clear, vivid and altogether distinctive voice to believers and seekers searching for the One who will give rest to their restless hearts.”  —James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on December 7, 2018
This is about the version called the "modern English version". Amazon in their wisdom have not made it clear that this is the abbreviated version of the text. They also put all the reviews of the Confessions together so that it is generally impossible to work out which version reviewers are talking about. I bought this a Kindle book and feel that it is missold. It is useless to me in its present form as it omits the most important parts that I need it for. Be aware.

Good: quick delivery and Cheep
Bad : the size of book is too big (A4 size), too much and tiny letter in a page.
I wonder who want to read this book.
Consequently this book doesn’t look smart and not easy to read. I cannot recommend this book anyone.
