The Confessions of St. Augustine by Saint Augustine Book Summary

The young Augustine does, however, catch a passion for the pursuit of Philosophical truth, learning the doctrines of Manicheism, skepticism, and Neoplatonism. This last philosophy will have a profound influence on him-- theConfessions are perhaps the most masterful expression of his intricate fusion of Catholic theology with Neoplatonic ideas. Moving back to Thagaste, then back to Carthage again, and on to Rome and Milan, Augustine continues to wrestle with his doubts about what he has learned and with his budding interest in Catholicism, the faith of his mother, Monica. He also continues to pursue his career as a teacher of rhetoric (an occupation he later frowns upon as the salesmanship of empty words) and his habits of indulgence in sex and other pleasures of the sensual world. Things change in Milan, where Augustine finally decides that Catholicism holds the only real truth. Convinced of this but lacking the will to make the leap into a fully devoted life (including baptism and sexual abstinence), Augustine has a famous conversion experience in his Milan garden and becomes a devoted and chaste Catholic.

The Confessions of St. Augustine (Saint Augustine) Book Reviews

NiceIt's a good book.Score: 1/5

SNice.Score: 5/5

Very good bookWhat a powerful message that will speak to everyone..Score: 5/5

A StruggleArchaic, obscure translation presents a tall mountain to climb. Might want a modern version to get more of a sense of the thing, which is not at the ready in the best of times. St A does seem of the belief that the Lord takes an inordinate interest in what he has to say. Rather full of himself that way. Curious piece of work..Score: 3/5

Interesting, but hard to readI think it's just me and my lack of understanding of Elizabethan English but even though it's interesting I can't understand much of it, maybe it's just the translation considering how old this is..Score: 2/5

A Powerful Man of GodWhat an insightful book, this really spoke to me in my doubts and my hopes..Score: 5/5

The Confessions of St AugustineA huge disappointment !.Score: 1/5

Great read for these timesIt's good to read from such a giant in the Christian faith that struggled with faith and doubt, chastisement vs sexual indulgence. Some (not all) of the same questions modern Catholics struggle with today, myself included..Score: 5/5
