Augustine undertook this greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The book in fact is an extended poetic, passionate and intimate prayer. Second Edition includes an annotated bibliography by William Harmless, SJ.
“Boulding is to be commended for capturing the emotion, humility, and sincerity in Augustine’s writing… Buy this book and read it, often. Buy another copy and give it to someone who is struggling with sin, forgiveness, or mercy. Pass along a copy to a friend or colleague who has never realized the restoration found in confessing our poor state to God. This is an important new translation.”
