Publisher's Summary

Considered by many to be the first autobiography/memoir ever written, Confessions is a retrospective view of a life challenged by uncertainty, doubt, human frailty, and earthly desires. Augustine discovers and cherishes a deeply personal relationship with his God, all while describing the day-to-day dealings of his life in the fading, corrupt days of the Roman Empire. Translated in 1997 by Maria Boulding, this version of The Confessions contains clear, modern language.

Nice book but......

It was a very good book contentwise but I wish it was narrated by Don Leslie, the impact would have been more and listening, enjoyable. After a couple of hours of some lifeless rantings of what would have been a beautiful insight into the life of St. Augustine, I stopped listening. Don did a marvelous job with Become Who You Were Born to Be by Brian Souza.

Audible needs to find a new versio....
