More About The Confessions of Saint Augustine (a Vero House Abridged Classic) by St Augustine Of Hippo; Albert C. Outler; Kenneth E. Nowell
 
 
 
Overview

He was born Aurelius Augustinus in the year 354, and eventually became bishop of Hippo Regius, in northern Africa, and a Doctor of the Church. Since then, reviews of St. Augustine's writings regularly spark controversy. But he remains immensely influential, making major contributions to both Western Christianity and philosophy. Yet, his Confessions are more than another treatise on theology. In this autobiographical work, we see the drama of human spiritual development, from the foolish decadence of youth, to the wisdom that results from a persistent focus on Truth. We learn also that a saintly mother's prayers matter in guiding a wayward son's footing on the slippery path to heaven. For this reason, the books of Augustine's Confessions are among the most popular writings from this prolific saint. Even in modern times, Augustine's words remain a powerful force in philosophy and theology. More than that, however, his autobiographical Confessions provide hope for every Prodigal Son. This minimally abridged translation has been edited for modern English, making this classic an engaging treasure that anyone, today, can and should appreciate.
