Considered by many to be the first autobiography/memoir ever written, Confessions is a retrospective view of a life challenged by uncertainty, doubt, human frailty, and earthly desires. Augustine discovers and cherishes a deeply personal relationship with his God, all while describing the day-to-day dealings of his life in the fading, corrupt days of the Roman Empire.

Translated in 1997 by Maria Boulding, this version of The Confessions contains clear, modern language.

    " A very honest reader will not come away without having had a good think. "

    " Probably the most enjoyable book I have ever read. It is packed with Augustine's dramatic telling of his life, a beautiful mixture of philosophy, autobiography, theology, and poetry. I am forever inspired. "

    " Fantastic, especially the first half. St. Augustine really laid it out there in capturing the pain of the human experience, really evoked some solid despair. "

    " Our Seminar class only read through page 178, and I'm sorry to say I just can't see myself reading the rest on my own. It was good for me, but I didn't enjoy it. All his self-flagellation seems self-indulgent, a waste of productive energy, and he's preoccupied with issues I can't relate to, like whether God has a material substance. Perhaps it would help if I had more historical context. "
