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

About the Author:

Aurelius Augustinus (354–430), better known as Saint Augustine, was born to poor parents, Patricius and Monnica, in the small town of Tagaste in Numidia, North Africa. Despite his mother's pious influence, Augustine embarked on several years of wild living when he began his education at the University of Carthage. During this time he fathered a child and adopted the Manichean faith, a sect whose followers professed to have received from their founder a higher truth than from Christ. After years of seeking and eventual disillusionment with the Manichean ways, Augustine acknowledged Jesus as Lord during a dramatic garden conversion. He was baptized the following year and became an ascetic––studying the foundations of faith, writing (chiefly against his former sect), and conversing with a group of disciples, first at Rome and then in his native town. During a visit to Hippo near his hometown he entered the priesthood and in 395 he became Bishop of Hippo, an office he held until his death. He is known for his literary accomplishments, chiefly The City of God and The Confessions, as well as his patient pastoral leadership in the Catholic Church.
