Niagara Falls, NY, USA
|Confessions (2005, Paperback)|
|One of the most influential religious books in the Christian tradition recalls crucial events in the author's life: his mid-4th-century origins in rural Algeria; the rise to a lavish lifestyle at the imperial court in Milan; his struggle with sexual desires; eventual renunciation of secular ambitions and marriage; and recovery of his Catholic faith.|
Written in 397 A.D., Confessions is the autobiography of Augustine of Hippo, a moving and profound record of a human soul and its struggles toward salvation. The most widely read of all his works, it not only tells the story of Augustine's struggle in the faith, but also his love for Jesus Christ.

I'm a little bookish so I read constantly. I'm in college now so my own novels are still waiting to be written (scifi btw), but I needed this book for the sake of reviewing it for a senior course in Catholicism. Materially, the book was fine, I mean if you are looking into Catholicism for a study and you need to read Augustine, the words are there in this book. Editorially, the book was severely lacking though. There are many editions of this book edited better than this one, I'm afraid.
