Popular author and philosopher Peter Kreeft delves into one of the most beloved Christian classics of all time--Augustine's Confessions. He gathers key passages and offers perceptive commentary, making Confessions accessible to any reader who is both intellectually curious and spiritually hungry.
The Confessions is an intense personal narrative of a soul choosing between eternal life and death, an exploration of the timeless questions great minds have been asking for millennia and a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to God. I Burned for Your Peace is not a scholarly work but an unpacking of the riches found in Augustine's text. It is existential, personal, and devotional, as well as warm, witty, and thought-provoking. With Kreeft to guide them, readers of the Confessions can overhear and understand the intimate conversation between a towering intellect and the God whose peace he at last humbly accepts.
