Confessions by St. Augustine is the most well-known and influential Christian autobiography in existence. Augustine (354-430 A.D.), who was the Bishop of Hippo in North Africa, lived a wild, hedonistic life prior to his legendary conversion. Confessions is Augustine's first-hand account of his life and conversion, reading like a diary, and it also serves as on ongoing prayer. This edition contains the classic, original translation by Edward Bouverie Pusey. Nothing has been marred or modernized; this is the translation that has been studied for well over a century. Philosophers and theologians have long admired Augustine's work for its powerful insight, and countless readers have found inspiration and joy in reading about his life's journey from hedonism to peace.
