Confessions of St. Augustine

by Augustine

By common consent the work known as The Confessions of St. Augustine has a special place among the world's great books. Autobiographical in character (widely thought to be the first of this genre), it is not an attempt to tell the story of all the years of the writer's life, least of all of the outward events of those years. But no writer ever went deeper into his own character and deeds, passed keener judgments upon himself, or revealed himself more fully and more humbly to others. This book is not only a most penetrating psychological study and a unique document for understanding the spiritual and ascetical life, but it is also a storehouse of thought for the philosopher and the theologian, and for others as well.

No matter who you are or what your religious experience may be, The Confessions of St. Augustine is a book that will help you. It will teach you how to love God with all your mind as well as all your heart.
Warren W. Wiersbe
