Confessions by Augustine( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 1500 years have passed since this book was written by a Roman, but it has lost none of its freshness and appeal. Here a Christian saint who has influenced the thought and feeling of the West as perhaps no other man has, tells the story of his life with the utmost candor and pertinence of phrase. He considers himself a brand saved from the burning through the goodness of God, to whom he pays tribute. The book is, indeed, above all an act of thanksgiving. But no doubt it was also written because Augustine hoped he could outline a goal for many young men and women of his time who were going nowhere in particular. This is likewise a book about a student and professor of the fourth century, a book which in spite of its historical coloring seems to be describing the life of an intellectual in our own time. - Introduction
