Confessions

Saint Augustine wasn’t always a saint. He led a turbulent and licentious youth, and belonged to the fourth century equivalent of a street gang. At the age of 29, he met a young man, Ambrose, whose intelligence, kindness and strong faith fascinated and puzzled Augustine. Then at the age of thirty-two, under Ambrose’s tutelage, Augustine converted to Christianity and went on to be one of the most influential Christians throughout history.

Confessions traces a pilgrimage of unbounded grace, passionately wrestling with the spiritual questions that have engaged thoughtful minds since time began. It is Augustine’s utter candor about his own sin and his struggle to reconcile his mind and soul to God’s holy character that made Confessions the classic that it has been for fifteen centuries and compelling to readers still today.
