A translation for the 21st Century
About this Book:
The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered to be the greatest Christian classic. Augustine's notorious life before his baptism raised questions about the genuineness of his conversion. It is his honest struggle with the faith which has given The Confessions such timeless appeal over the last sixteen centuries.
Introduction, translation and notes by Maria Boulding, O.S.B.
Edited by John E. Rotelle, O.S.A.
What Are People Saying about this Title?
"It is no exaggeration to say that Sister Maria Boulding's translation is of a different level of excellence from practically anything else on the market."
-Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Caterbury
"Augustine was surely larger than life and this translation matches him."
-Rev. Edmund Hill, O.P., Augustine scholar
"Boulding is to 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."
-Faith and Mission
"I see Boulding's work to be the English translation of The Confessions of Saint Augustine for years to come."
"A whole new generation should fall in love with one of Christendom's greatest works, thanks to Maria Boulding."
