Publisher's Summary

Considered to be the first autobiographical work in history, this timeless book is completely applicable to everyone who has experienced the struggle between good and evil in his own soul. Saint Augustine, born in Constantine in 354 C.E., was raised by a devout Christian mother. He abandoned the Christianity of his upbringing and had an illegitimate son. After hearing the sermons of Ambrose, he began his great internal struggle which led to his conversion in 387 C.E. The Confessions describe his conversion, shedding light on the questions that had troubled him on his way to the Cross. Outside Scripture it is the most famous - and perhaps the most important - of all spiritual books.


Audible Editor Reviews

This is one of the preeminent works about the Christian faith. While some say it lead the way to the dark ages because of it's emphasis on faith being the totality of human existence, it is also a moving and beautiful philosophical revelation and letter to God. Wonderful for the searcher as well as poetry to the ears. (Phil, Quality Assurance Administrator)
