Book Summary

In every age and every nations of the Western World since Augustine's death some fifteen hundred years ago, The Confessions have been acknowledged as one of mankind's great literary treasures.  Into this tapestry of a great soul are woven the strands of all man's great concerns:  the psychic impulses that snare us in selfishness, the ethical conflict between good and evil, the religious quest for God's radiant love. 

To his forceful translation, Rex Warner brings all his poetic skill and scholarly tact, creating an English version of The Confessions that speaks directly and intimately to the modern heart and mind.
