The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered the all time number one Christian classic. Augustine undertook his greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The Confessions are, in fact, an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer.

His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions. This new translation masterfully captures his experience.
