Confessions Book Description

"Confessions," by St. Augustine, is part of the ""Barnes & Noble Classics" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics": New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences-biographical, historical, and literary-to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. One of the first personal histories ever written, "The Confessions of St. Augustine" offers more than a gripping narrative of one man's battle against doubt. It is also a brilliant work of theology that helped set the foundation for much of modern Christian thought.
In a series of thirteen books, Saint Augustine displays a profound and searching intellect as he examines his life: his early memories of growing up in Roman North Africa during the fourth century A.D., his disgusted response to his mother's faith, his agonies and sins as a student, and finally his dramaticconversion in a garden in Milan. Along the way, the "Confessions" explores with great force and artistry the nature of time, mind, and memory, and lays out Augustine's interpretation of the Book of Genesis.
Throughout, Augustine's remarkable depth of thinking is matched only by his elegance of expression, which has powerfully moved readers for more than 1500 years. A timeless classic, the "Confessions" remains an unforgettable portrait of an individual's struggle for self-definition in the presence of a powerful God. Mark Vessey is Professor of English at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of "Latin Christian Authors in Late Antiquity and Their Texts" and co-editor of "Augustine and the Disciplines: Cassiciacum to "Confessions."" He has written extensively on the reception of early Christian Latin writings in the Renaissance and later periods.

About the Author :

Saint Augustine Of Hippo has contributed to Confessions as an author. Augustine was born in AD 354. He lived a wild, self-destructive life as a young man in Italy and was the subject of many prayers by his worried mother, Monica. After a life-changing conversion, he lived on to become a tremendous influence on Christian thinking. He died in AD 430.

Albert C Outler has contributed to Confessions as a translator. Albert C. Outler (1908-1989) was a Methodist theologian and philosopher. He is generally considered to be one of the most important Wesleyan scholars in the history of the church, as well as the first United Methodist theologian. He was a key figure in the twentieth-century ecumenical movement.
