Publisher's Summary

Saint Augustine is one of history's most prolific geniuses. With great eloquence and passion, his Confessions - a masterpiece of Western literature - explores enduring questions that continue to stir millions. Perhaps the most moving record of a soul's journey to grace, Confessions appears midway in Saint Augustine's prodigious body of theological writings and remains his most influential work.

The late Henry Chadwick's English translation of the Confessions will likely never be excelled. It is an exceptional piece of scholarship, of the highest literary standard, from one of Oxford's supremely gifted. And what a brilliant move to present this audiobook with the compelling voice of Richard Ferrone (whom I came to appreciate in the John Sandford novels, a decidedly different genre)! Mr. Ferrone renders the subtle prose of Augustine flawlessly and sympathetically; in my imagination Augustine will henceforth sound like Ferrone! This combination gets my vote for the Nobel Prize of Spoken Literature. The best Audible book ever.

This is a beautiful translation, and is wonderfully read by the narrarator. I can't think of St. Augustine without thinking of this guys voice. He reads in a meditative way if that makes any sense, without going too fast or too slow. The sound quality is excellent!
