The first autobiography ever written, Augustine's Confessions is a testament that shows how God gives rest to the weary and hope to the hopeless. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) is one of the most important figures in the history of Christianity. After a series of personal crises and years of serious study and debate, he was converted and eventually became Bishop of Hippo, in northern Africa. One of the most read Christian classics in all of history, this contemporary English edition brings its treasures to a new generation of readers. Foreword by Fr. Mark Henninger. Paperback.
