About the Authors
  • This volume presents the Latin text of one of the great classics of Christian literature, accompanied by a commentary. Confessions is concerned with one human life as an example of what it is to be human and in search of God. In books I-IV, Augustine reflects on his infancy and childhood, adolescent rebellion and student days, and his early teaching career. The commentary, which can be used by those new to Augustine and his world, concentrates on his brilliant Latin and on his theology and philosophy.

    • Accessible and affordable commentary on a very important text
    • Written with the needs of today's students in mind and does not assume a knowledge of the Bible or Christian theology
    • Focuses on Augustine's Latin style as well as his theology

    "It is an excellent addition to the resources available for students and teachers of the Confessions and of Christian Latin generally." John C. Cavadini, Anglican Theological Review
