Confessions [St Augustine] 9781598566390
Confessions traces a pilgrimage of unbounded grace, passionately wrestling with the spiritual questions that have engaged thoughtful minds since time began. Augustine uses his own experience to demonstrate how God works in human lives, transforming his confession of sin into a profound acknowledgement of God’s glory and power, a search for truth that turned a sinner into a saint.
Augustine of Hippo ( Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis)(November 13, 354 – August 28, 430), also known as St. Augustine was Bishop of Hippo Regius (present-day Annaba, Algeria). His writings were very influential in the development of Western Christianity. In addition to Confessions and City of God Augustine also authored books of apologetics, biblical commentary and theology.
“It is difficult to find a theologian—from any age—who has not been influenced by the teachings of St. Augustine.” —Richard Foster, Devotional Classics
