Bad Scan Like so many of the free books available for the Nook, this is a Google scan & book is very poor. Pagination and printing is off. This is not the way to read a book. It is not worth the trouble, and I am deleting it. I guess you really do get what you pay for¿

I first came across St. Augustine's "Confessions" when I was a freshman in college. It was a monumental experience in terms of both the content of his writing and the freshness and relevance of his writing style. After re-reading them again recently, I am still struck with how contemporary the book feels. Aside from many of its 4th century particularities, the concerns that St. Augustine had and the way he frankly and honestly dealt with them could be lifted from almost any contemporary tell-all autobiography. The biggest exception is the fact that "Confessions" is a quintessentially and irreducibly a religious text, and in an age when religious considerations are largely pushed towards the margins of their life stories, it is refreshing and uplifting to see what would a life look like for someone who took them very seriously and committed himself to reorganizing one's whole life around the idea of serving God wholly and uncompromisingly. "Confessions" is a very accessible text, and for the most part it does not deal with theological and philosophical issues. The exception is the latter part of the book, which are almost exclusively dedicated to those topics. You may want to skip those at the first reading, but I would encourage you to read them nevertheless. Maybe the very inspiring and uplifting story of St. Augustine's conversion to Christianity can lead you into deeper considerations about your faith or the meaning of life in general. I cannot think of a better introduction to those topics than "Confessions," nor of a better guide than St. Augustine.

Take TIME to read this spiritually helpful book. A page or two a day is easier to comprehend and apply to our life. This book is a four star rate in my opinion.

This book is an amazing read, but it is really hard to read this ebook because of all the errors.

I attend bible class and need to be aquainted with the Confessions of St. Augustine. The History of Early Church is quite interesting and informative.

This probably does give a flavor of the manner of reasoning of St. Augustine, a saint who lived when people evidently had a lot more time for navel-gazing. The language is archaic and the reasoning obtuse. I would have preferred a more "helpful" - dumbed down? - translation.
