Product Description

A Reader's Companion to Augustine's Confessions is a tool for teaching and studying the great Christian classic, Augustine's Confessions. It is a unique venture in which thirteen different scholars look at each of the thirteen books in the Confessions and interpret their chapters in light of that book and in light of the rest of Augustine's work. The result is that the richness and ambiguity of Augustine's work shines through as well as the richness and ambiguity of different readings to the Confessions. Contributors include: Todd Breyfogle, Pamela Bright, Philip Cary, John C. Cavadini, Frederick Crosson, Leo Ferrari, Robert P. Kennedy, Thomas Martin, Charles T. Mathewes, Robert McMahon, Kim Paffenroth, Eric Plumer, and James Wetzel.
