This timeless work is applicable to everyone who has experienced the struggle between good and evil in his own soul. St. Augustine, born in Tagaste, Numidia, in North Africa (now Constantine) in 354, was raised by a devout Christian mother. He abandoned the Christianity in which he had been brought up, taking on a mistress who bore him an illegitimate son. After hearing the sermons of Ambrose, he began a great internal struggle which led to his conversion in 387. The Confessions describes his conversion, shedding light on the questions that troubled him on his way to the Cross. The earliest of autobiographies, The Confessions remains unsurpassed as a sincere and intimate record of a great and pious person laying bare his soul before God. Other than Scripture, it is the most famous––and perhaps the most important––of all spiritual books.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The book is almost literally the man and the man is an individual, and that is what has kept the work fresh and powerful these many centuries. Augustine the individual transcends systems, philosophies, theologies. He meets the reader as he met God, as an individual.”

    National Review

  • “A masterpiece beyond classification.”

    Church Times

  • “In plain words—if you can accept them as plain—Christianity is the life and death and resurrection of Christ going on day after day in the souls of individual men and in the heart of society. It is this Christ-life, this incorporation into the Body of Christ, this union with His death and resurrection as a matter of conscious experience, that  St. Augustine wrote of in his Confessions.”

    Thomas Merton

    " I only read a small portion of it, but plan to read the rest at a later date. "

    " Augustine is a very talented rhetorician. He has some beautiful passages. It was a bit dense at times, but really interesting to see how one man worked though the grand mysteries of the universe. "

    " Although I found it hard to read at first, this book really has some good insights! "

    " I'd give this negative stars if I could. Too much pissing and moaning about pears and how everyone wants to read cool stuff written by Virgil and not dry, stupid stuff by people like him. The worst part of a philosophical education is getting through the idiocy that is Augustine. "
