You made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it finds rest in you. St. Augustine was a towering figure in his own time, and remains the greatest of the fathers of the church. His Confessions are an autobiographical work, recalling crucial events in his life: his mid-4th century boyhood in rural Algeria, the rise to a lavish lifestyle at the imperial court in Milan, his struggle with sexual desires, and his conversion to Christianity. It has become one of the greatest of the Christian classics, revealing an individual in the joys and agonies of life lived to the full in search of truth.

From the Publisher:

Webster’s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Confessions of Saint Augustine by Augustine was edited for three audiences. The first includes French-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL® or TOEIC® preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or French speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in French in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement® (AP®) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's French Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in French or English. TOEFL®, TOEIC®, AP® and Advanced Placement® are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book. All rights reserved.

About the Author:

Augustine of Hippo (354–430), Bishop of Hippo Regius, was a philosopher and theologian. One of the fathers of the church, he is one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity. E. M. Blaiklock (1903–1983) produced a large volume of literature in the fields of biblical studies and Christian apologetics. Maggi Dawn serves as chaplain to Robinson College, Cambridge University; is the author of Beginnings and Endings (and What Happens in Between): Daily Bible Readings from Advent to Epiphany; and contributes to such publications as Christian Century Journal and the Guardian.
