  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Josiah Woltersdorf | 2/11/2014

    " Confessions is a book of the love of one man toward his Almighty Saviour. A man who lived in sin and misery for the beginning of his life and converted, he prayed to the Lord "to give me chastity and continence,... but not yet." When Augustine finally found the truth, he showed how nothing else could be. A look into the life of Augustine is to see the life of the fool, and the life of the wise man, described in Proverbs. The stark contrast in the way of life was not marked by a life without sin, but a love of Christ and good works flowing from a regenerate heart (the way we may know by which we are saved) Written in prayer form, this book is convicting and full of wisdom. "

    " I love the way that Augustine writes..he is very lucid and I can imagine myself besides him through all his struggles..His praise for God truely comes from the heart and I can identify with him when he says about the Creator "we do not know Him as we should" for all our understandings about him are colored by our own assumptions and as the Quran Majeed says " And there is none like unto Him". "

    " Reading this again, perhaps for the tenth time. It gets better and more powerful with each encounter. Socrates may have insisted, "Know thyself." But no one took up the dread task with so much earnestness and persistence as Augustine, eight hundred years later. Here, we find the first great instance of a condition we now understood to be uniquely modern, infinite self-contradiction, as well as a correlative activity, interminable self-analysis. "

    " I must confess, this book got a bit tedious for me at times, but there are some great gems that sparkle out and make it worth the work: his boyhood in Carthage as a reluctant scholar but lover of Dido; his youthful prayer, "Lord make me pure, but not yet"; his taking up the book to read and finding life and freedom at last. The section on memory is amazingly modern, and the section on time boggles the mind. This is a book I'm sure to read again. "
