As a fan of St. Augustine I purchased this nook book without first checking it out. The "wherewiths, withers, thees, thou, knoweths" and adding -est to SO many words makes it tiresome reading. Then throw in some "whences" & "thences". If you can get through all of that, more power to you. I've read translations that use more contemporary wording and suggest to future readers of Augustine to compare before committing to any book. St. Augustine's spirituality is as powerful as ever, just difficult to read in this format.

Your sample of this book does not provide even one page of Ryan's translation - which would be the only reason I would be interested in the book. I am NOT interested in the prelude and etc.

It was written so long ago, yet it could have been written this year. The style and thought are very current, very insightful. Augustine writes so eloquently. His struggles can easily be our struggles, and his style is so forceful, yet poetic. Strongly recommend.

It would be most useful to see some of the English translation in the free sample of the book.

Mess you may find. Religious confessions like born again usually are best from a gladiator where you are liable to be swatted one if disrespectful duribg the sermon

This was NOT Maria Boulding's translation. The cover shows her book and even mentioned her name, my husband has a hard copy, so I was able to compare with his and thought I was downloading the same version. This translation is much harder to read and understand. Wish I would have bought the real book instead of this download.

This book is what much of the Catholic dogma is based on!
