It is an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer that Augustine wrote as an autobiography sometime after his conversion, to confess his sins and proclaim God's goodness. Just as his first hearers were captivated by his powerful conversion story, so also have many millions been over the following sixteen centuries. His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions. This acclaimed new translation by Sister Maria Boulding, O.S.B., masterfully captures his experience, and is written in an elegant and flowing style. Her beautiful contemporary translation of the ancient Confessions makes the classic work more accessible to modern readers. Her translation combines the linguistic accuracy demanded by 4th-century Latin with the poetic power aimed at by Augustine, not as discernable in previous translations.Hide synopsis

The subject of this review is the translation found in Volume 18 of the Britannica ...
In this great classic, one might think of the words - "behind every great man there is a woman". In this case, it was Augustine's great mother, now known as St. Monica who was the woman who prayed for his conversion for twenty years or more.
Augustine, in a great tone of deep humility, addresses God ...
I have not finished this book as yet, it is not a book that you rush through. I'm finding that I am totally facinated with St. Augustine and the way he perceived the world he lived in; his conversion was nothing short of a miracle of prayer. His mother, St. Monica prayed for him for 20 years before ...
