The confessions by Augustine( Book )

Augustine's Confessions might be one of the most profound Christian testimonies ever recorded. Not necessarily because Augustine led an unusual life or faced intriguing circumstances which had to be overcome; because, in reality, the actual events of his life were relatively less than extraordinary. Augustine's Confessions serve as such a spectacular testimony because, besides the fact that it was one of the first of its kind in the literary world, of the depth of his introspection and the clarity of his mind. It is a work that has made a permanent mark on Theology as well as Philosophy. For most of the Confessions Augustine systematically examines his life up until what would have then been the present, casting pride aside in an effort to truly understand his struggle in the context of God's will and his own rebellious sinful nature. Amazingly the similarities inherent in the human struggle with the world and self span time without a hitch, making this work just as relevant today as it would have been 1,600 years ago. Once Augustine arrives at his present, he then turns his focus to an analysis of the first few chapters of Genesis, seemingly with the intent to refute several Manichean misconceptions that Augustine himself had become ensnared by. At the same time, however, Augustine sheds some light on a few topics that individuals have struggled with throughout the ages, which are likely open to some interpretation but nonetheless engaging. The conclusion of the Confessions is one which maintains its theme throughout, indicating that the pursuit of knowledge and that of truth should and will arrive at the same conclusion. Confessions certainly lives up to its title as a timeless classic

Written shortly after he became Biship of Hippo, "Confessions" highlights Augustine's childhood in Numidia and his riotous youth and early manhood in Carthage, Rome, and Milan. It also chronicles his continuing struggle with sin and his efforts to find satisfaction in Manichaenism and Neoplatonism. Particularly poignant are his mother's tireless efforts to rescue him from self-destruction and his dramatic conversion to the Christian faith at age 32

"The son of a pagan father and a Christian mother, Saint Augustine spent his early years torn between conflicting faiths and worldviews. His Confessions, written when he was in his forties, recount how, slowly and painfully, he came to turn away from his youthful ideas and licentious lifestyle, to become instead a staunch advocate of Christianity and one of its most influential thinkers. A remarkably honest and revealing spiritual autobiography, the Confessions also address fundamental issues of Christian doctrine, and many of the prayers and meditations it includes are still an integral part of the practice of Christianity today. In his introduction R.S. Pine-Coffin discusses Saint Augustine's intentions in writing his Confessions and issues of translation. This edition also includes a list of dates of events recorded in the Confessions."--Publisher

Confessions (Latin: Confessiones) is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St. Augustine of Hippo, written in Latin between 397 and 400 AD.[1] Modern English translations of it are sometimes published under the title The Confessions of St. Augustine in order to distinguish the book from other books with similar titles. Its original title was "Confessions in Thirteen Books," and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit (font: Wikipedia)
