    Confessions is a timeless classic of Western literature and an absolute must read for everyone.

    This accessible and erudite translation by Henry Chadwick helps the modern audience to appreciate the beauty and depth of this work by St. Augustine. The Confessions is a must read for all Christians as well as everyone living in Western Culture. In this work, the older Bishop Augustine describes his young life and the journey by which he became a Christian. Readers cannot help to be edified by the difficult and tortuous path by which Augustine became one of the greatest theologians in this history of Christianity. He did not begin his life as a devout Christian, nor become a Christian in his young life, but immersed himself in different philosophies and religions, for instance Manichaeism and Academic Skepticism, before finally coming to the Church. Beyond the incredible story, the style that Augustine uses is both subtle and impressive, with layers only revealed through re-readings and reading the text out loud. I highly recommend that everyone read this work several times!
