From the Back Cover:

Your Way to God

Because The Confessions of St. Augustine has a special place among the world's greatest books, hundreds of editions have been published in dozens of languages. As Augustine tells his life story, he reveals how you, too, can find the way to:

* Rest securely in Jesus
* Discern good from evil
* Obtain answers to prayer
* Have eternal life
* Avoid false spiritual pursuits
* Know the will of God
* Experience the power of the Holy Spirit

Here is the timeless conflict between good and evil, portrayed through the life of one man who found spiritual growth and unshakable faith. Just as Augustine did, you can experience the unspeakable joy of being pure and righteous before God, regardless of your past.

"And these things we write unto you, that your joy may be full." –– 1 John 1:4

Saint Augustine was born on November 13th, A.D. 354, in Tagaste (modern Souk Ahras, Algeria), and died almost seventy-six years later in Hippo Regius (modern Annaba) on the Mediterranean coast sixty miles away. In the years between, he devoted himself to the mastery of the texts of scripture, becoming a formidable theologian.

Martin Marty, one of today’s most respected theologians, is professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, where the Martin Marty Center has been founded to promote public religion endeavors. His more than fifty books include Modern American Religion. He is a winner of the National Book Award and was the first religion scholar to receive the National Humanities Medal.
