The Confessions of St. Augustine is one of the most moving diaries ever recorded of a man's journey to the fountain of God's grace. Writing as a sinner, not a saint, Augustine shares his innermost thoughts and conversion experiences, and wrestles with the spiritual questions that have stirred the hearts of the thoughtful since time began.

Starting with his childhood in Numidia and continuing through his youth and early adulthood in Carthage, Rome, and Milan, this book shows Augustine as a human being, a fellow traveler on the road to salvation. If you are fighting changes in your life, struggling to know God more, or staggering around roadblocks in your faith, Augustine's confessions will stretch your mind and enrich your soul.

    " This is a classic that is absolutely a must read. What is essentially an extended prayer, St. Augustine writes the story of his pre conversion and his conversion, recounting the long path he took to entering the Church. It is a story of hope and also paints the Saint in a true, humanly fashion. Additionally, it contains deep probes into the nature of thought, memory and the like that continue to baffle philosophers and theologians alike. Yet it is simple enough for anyone to be edified in its reading. "

    " i'm amazed how approachable this text was. there are definitely archaic references that go over my head, but overall, it's a compelling spiritual autobiography. "

    " Out of curiosity, I read this book from the 4th century, St. Augustine's most famous writing. The reading was a bit tiring, due to its length and repetitiveness, but embedded in it were profound spiritual and philosophical ideas about the nature of God and of creation, including for example, an exploration by Augustine on the illusion of time and its transcendence by Eternity, which seems to mirror Buddhism's insight that there is only the eternal present moment. "

    " 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. "
