Publisher's Description

The Confessions of St. Augustine has a special place among the world's greatest books. As Augustine tells his life story, he reveals how you can find the way to rest securely in Jesus, discern good from evil, avoid false spiritual pursuits, and know the will of God. Here is the timeless conflict between good and evil, portrayed through the life of one man who found spiritual growth and unshakable faith. Just as Augustine did, you can experience the unspeakable joy of being pure and righteous before God, regardless of your past.

Author Bio

Aurelius Augustinus (354-430), better known as Saint Augustine, was born to poor parents, Patricius and Monnica, in the small town of Tagaste in Numidia, North Africa. Despite his mother's pious influence, Augustine embarked on several years of wild living when he began his education at the University of Carthage. During this time he fathered a child and adopted the Manichean faith, a sect whose followers professed to have received from their founder a higher truth than from Christ. After years of seeking and eventual disillusionment with the Manichean ways, Augustine acknowledged Jesus as Lord during a dramatic garden conversion. He was baptized the following year and became an ascetic--studying the foundations of faith, writing (chiefly against his former sect), and conversing with a group of disciples, first at Rome and then in his native town. During a visit to Hippo near his hometown he entered the priesthood and in 395 he became Bishop of Hippo, an office he held until his death. He is known for his literary accomplishments, chiefly The City of God and The Confessions, as well as his patient pastoral leadership in the Catholic Church.

    When a person is reading Augustines confessions he or she may notice the unique writing style used. The book is like reading journal entries throughout Augustines life. You could describe his writing style to be somewhat like a diary, but contains mature thoughts and insights about life and God. More specifically, Augustine is writing as if he is praying to God. In a similar sense, at times his writing style is analogous to Davids in the Psalms. To read my full review go to this website: http://www.pchasesears.com/bookreview/default.asp?id=2
