Book Description:

An Audio Book, unabridged
translated by Edward B. Pusey
Read by Bernard Mayes

This timeless work is applicable to everyone who has experienced the struggle between good and evil in his own soul.

St. Augustine, born in Tagaste, Numidia, in North Africa (now Constantine) in 354, was raised by a devout Christian mother. He abandoned the Christianity in which he had been brought up, taking on a mistress who bore him an illegitimate son. After hearing the sermons of Ambrose, he began a great internal struggle which led to his conversion in 387. The Confessions describes his conversion, shedding light on the questions that troubled him on his way to the Cross.

The earliest of autobiographies, The Confessions remains unsurpassed as a sincere and intimate record of a great and pious person laying bare his soul before God. Other than Scripture, it is the most famous--and perhaps the most important--of all spiritual books.

Author:

Saint Augustine (354-430), a philosopher and theologian, was born in the city of Tagaste, the present day Souk Ahras, Algeria. A Latin Father and Doctor of the Church, he is one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. His works, including The Confessions, are still read around the world.
