"The Confessions" is an all time number one Christian classic -- an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer written by St. Augustine because he felt called by God to make this confession. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, calls Boulding's translation "a different level of excellence from practically anything else on the market. She has perfected an elegant and flowing style." This 2nd edition includes a long-awaited annotated bibliography.
