Publisher's Description

Our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

The first autobiography ever written, and one of the most profound testaments of faith, ever.

"This book is the masterpiece from which all other Christian memoirs flow. Augustine's astonishing story remains as fresh as it did when he wrote it in the late fourth century. The Confessions still speaks with a clear, vivid and altogether distinctive voice to believers and seekers searching for the One who will give rest to their restless hearts."
—James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints

Author Bio

St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) was a one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. After a series of personal crises, and years of serious study and debate, he converted to Christianity and eventually became the Bishop of Hippo, in northern Africa. His two masterpieces, The Confessions and The City of God are two of the most-read Christian classics in history. 

Fr. Mark Henninger has been teaching The Confessions for decades as the Edward Martin Chair of Medieval Philosophy, Georgetown University.
