    " 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. "

    " The translation I read was King-James-English in style and it made it difficult to understand at times. But it was REALLY interesting. The theological thought after conversion was the most interesting to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 1/15/2014

    " A wonderful Christian classic, examine his life, but just glance at the doctrine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 12/18/2013

    " Very impacting book on my spiritual development and understanding of sanctification. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 12/15/2013

    " I finally picked it up again after a lengthy hiatus. St. Augustine was a genius. His musings on time, memory, and signs are poetic, edifying, and fascinating. I don't know if I've ever read a book that communicates so powerfully what it would mean to have the sort of faith Augustine did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 11/26/2013

    " A lovely introduction to St. Augustine's Confessions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry Putthoff | 11/14/2013

    " Great book of quotes. Read this in Western Civ at the University of Kansas "

    " Augustin, Augustin, what a troubled soul you were. I really connect to his struggle for faith. I may not agree with his theology all the time, but i can respect the reasons and path that lead him to his beliefs. maybe he is stringent because of guilt and the need to atone for those sins... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 10/25/2013

    " Some parts hard to follow, some parts very inspirational. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristen | 8/6/2013

    " Why do people feel the need to publish all of their deep dark thoughts and secrets? The LAST title I'd ever pick for a book is "confessions." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Ladwig | 7/23/2013

    " Probably one of the best books ever written, the entire book is a prayer to God in which Augustine describes his conversion to Christianity and his love for Christ. A must read book for anyone who wants to be cultured. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allen | 8/12/2012

    " Very interesting read. What struck me about this was that the struggles that Augustine faced are very similar to the struggles we have today. "

    " Far too dense and long. This 300 page book has about as much content as a normal 1000 page book, causing my brain to physically hurt after reading for an hour. The content itself is good, but it is too closely packed together to make the reading of it anywhere near an enjoyable experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Ishimasa | 4/30/2012

    " My favorite book in all the world "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walter | 1/16/2012

    " I haven't finished this yet. I read a majority of it. There's a lot of really awesome stuff in here. That being said, it's probably the most difficult thing I've ever read. I hope to finish one day, but I'm not really currently reading this anymore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lanny | 5/29/2011

    " I'm on my fourth read... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danny Bennett | 9/15/2009

    " Another classic in Christian theology. I liked it a lot better than Calvin and Aquines mainly because it reads like a novel than just theological arguments. "
