6 Reviews
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.

About the author (2001)

Saint Augustine was born on November 13th, A.D. 354, in Tagaste (modern Souk Ahras, Algeria), and died almost seventy-six years later in Hippo Regiusó(modern Annaba) on the Mediterranean coast sixty miles away. In the years between, he devoted himself to the mastery of the texts of scripture, becoming a formidable theologian.

Martin Marty, one of today's most respected theologians, is professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, where the Martin Marty Center has been founded to promote public religion endeavors. His more than fifty books include Modern American Religion. He is a winner of the National Book Award and was the first religion scholar to receive the National Humanities Medal.


Rex Warner was a Professor of the University of Connecticut from 1964 until his retirement in He was born in 1905 and went to Wadham College, Oxford, where he gained a 'first' in Classical Moderations, and took a degree in English Literature. He taught in Egypt and England, and was Director of the British Institute, Athens, from 1945 to 1947.
