Description

You made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it finds rest in you. St Augustine was a towering figure in his own time, and remains the greatest of the fathers of the church. His CONFESSIONS are an autobiographical work, recalling crucial events in his life: his mid-4th-century boyhood in rural Algeria; the rise to a lavish lifestyle at the imperial court in Milan; his struggle with sexual desires; and his conversion to Christianity. It has become one of the greatest of the Christian classics, revealing an individual in the joys and agonies of life lived to the full in search of truth.This new edition includes an preface by the translator that sets Augustine in the context of his time, and a foreword by Maggi Dawn.
