Confessions of St Augustine, a passionate, deeply honest autobiographical account of Augustine’s journey toward faith, has been a source of spiritual guidance and intellectual nourishment for millions of people throughout the centuries. While Augustine is regarded as one of Christianity’s greatest theologians, the enduring and universal appeal of the Confessions is undoubtedly in Augustine’s humanity—in his fervent examination of his own struggles, conflicts and temptations, and in his intensely personal quest for God. The present edition of the Confessions will offer a profound source of spiritual enlightenment to today’s readers.
