The Confessions of Saint Augustine

Product Review (submitted on November 29, 2007):
The uncut text and the voice of Simon Vance. Does anything else need to be said.

In this uknblinking autobiography Augustine bears all. His theft of some pears at 16, his growing sexual addiction, his developing philosophy and eventually his theology. He takes on the nature of evil, the concept of time and God (God is outside time we learn), and the famous conversion in the garden when an unseen kid sings Pick it up and read, Pick it up and read, and he goes and picks up scroll set at Romans.

Augustine is completely honest as he takes us step by step thru his own flawed experience, and how God was always there waiting for him.
