The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered the all time number one Christian classic. It is an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer. Augustine was probably forty-three when he began this endeavor. He had been a baptized Catholic for ten years, a priest for six, and a bishop for only two. His pre-baptismal life raised questions in the community. Was his conversion genuine? The first hearers were captivated, as many millions have been over the following sixteen centuries. His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions. This new translation masterfully captures his experience.

From the Publisher:

Maria Boulding's translation is clear and crisp. It respects Augustine's language concerning inclusiveness to my knowledge the first to do so and uniquely highlights the poetic elements embodied in Augustine's work. I see Boulding's work to be for years to come. -Rev. Edmund Hill O.P. So old and yet so new! This contemporary translation of Augustine's was like meeting an old friend and touching perennial truth despite the passing years. Augustine was surely larger than life-and this translation matches it
