Product Description

Considered one of the greatest Christian classics of Augustine was written with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. It is in fact an extended poetic passionate intimate prayer that has captivated those who have heard it for the past 16 centuries. He was probably 43 when he began this endeavor and had been a baptized Catholic for ten years a priest for six and a bishop for only two. His pre-baptismal life raised questions in the community. Was his conversion genuine? This new translation masterfully captures his experience of God which speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions.

Publisher's Description

Although Augustine's "Confessions" has been translated many times, it is not exaggeration to say that Sister Maria Boulding's translation is "of a different level of excellence from practically anything else on the market" (Rowan Williams, Bishop of Monmonth).
