The classic autobiography of the man who journeyed from sin to sainthood. In every age and every nation of the Western World since Augustineís death some fifteen hundred years ago, 'The Confessions' have been acknowledged as one of mankindís great literary treasures. Into this tapestry of a great soul are woven the strands of all manís vital concerns - the psychic impulses that snare us in selfishness, the ethical conflict between good and evil, the religious quest for Godís 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.
