    Bad Scan

    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¿

    A reviewer

    We read this in my Senior Religion class. My teacher stressed that it was one of the greatest theological/philosophical texts ever, but I disagreed. It is most likely due to my puerility and taste for novels, not autobiographies, that I disagree. However, if you are in touch with your faith to a certain degree, I would recommend this. :)

    Life Changing

    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.

    Different book than is shown on page.

    The book that you receive when you download this title is an archaic version of the Confessions and is missing the last three chapters. I called Customer Service and they were very helpful. They were very courteous and refunded my purchase.

    I Also Recommend:

    Confessions of St Augustine (Large Print)

    What a great book that is now available in large print for those of us who need a bit larger print than the fine print usually reserved for legal documents! ha!
    St Augustine draws us in to his world and his travels as he walks the road towards the City of God. His reflections offer so much hope and inspiration in a world so desperately in need of affirming voices.
    In BX 9 the death of his Mother Monica is a beautiful tribute to her faith and her charity among the godly. This is a book that will never be out of style or grow stale. We are all faced with the same challenges as we walk our won pilgrim way. It is definetealy a companion for the journey. It's a great read in your early years and a must in your later years.

    Highly recomended! Really, check it out

    I like reading this in bits. It's easy to read but more importantly the message needs to be digested and internalized. It's such an insightful look at how we all realy are.

    An old translation? too old??

    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.
