The Confessions of St. Augustine, the second volume in the Catholic Classics series, is an updated translation of the key work of Catholic tradition that is accessible to modern audiences.
This classic yet relevant piece was written by the Doctor of the Church as a prayer to God, admitting his faith despite past mistakes and acknowledging the ways that God has transformed his heart. It is widely regarded as one of the most powerful and inspiring works of the saints. It has been a fundamental reflection on the spiritual life for believers who desire to persevere through weakness towards the splendour of heaven over the years.
This text draws readers ever closer to God through St. Augustine's conversations with the heavenly Father who called him out of a life of sin and onto the path towards sainthood, exploring topics such as understanding Sacred Scripture, the weakness of the human heart, and the transformative power of an encounter with the living God.
