Publisher's Summary

Written by Saint Augustine of Hippo, Confessions is the saint's autobiography that features 13 books that detail his early life and his conversion to Christianity as a result of the sin that he had incurred in his youth. Throughout the series, he also delivers his philosophical ponderings and ideas on theology, and it becomes evident that each event that has occurred in his life has had something to do with religion, as Saint Augustine is able to bridge the connections between these two very important topics. His sinful ways, he explains, came to an end when he traveled to Milan, where he realized for the first time that Catholicism would be the answer to his seemingly interminable quest to find freedom from sin.
While the first three quarters of the book detail his youth and his journey toward God, the last quarter of the book is really his attempt to encourage people to follow in his path. He aims to inspire all who hear Confessions and convince them that though they may have sinned in their lives, they can always make a return to God. Saint Augustine closes with a very thought-out and detailed analysis of Genesis and the Holy Trinity.

Essential Read

Would you listen to The Confessions of St. Augustine again? Why?

I will listen to this over and over. So many profound lessons and key`s to unlock oneself from the mire of sin.

What about David McCallion’s performance did you like?

Very well read by him. It comes to life and you can feel the words, and one speaking.

Any additional comments?

Those who complain that the english is difficult need to grow up. You're not reading "See Spot Run", the subject matter is profound, and deserves to be expressed with profound language. If your mind isn't capable of grasping the language, you're certainly not capable of grasping the content. This book isn't for you.

I absolutely love this book. A great narrator. True insight into the nature of sin and regeneration. Would recommend this to anyone willing to become accustomed to the old English. Go in with a dictionary.
