Reviews - What do customers think about Confessions Of St. Augustine-Burgundy Imitation Le?

A must read  Mar 29, 2007
When I studied religion at university, my lecturer told us that if we were to read any book, it had to be confessions. It really is a great book and well structured. It is very dense as the best religious texts are, so it will take a long time to properly read and absorb. A must have for your collection.
Hey, part of it is missing!!!  Aug 3, 2006
The Augustine part is fine and the translator did a wonderful job, but why were the parts edited out? Saint Augustine was just like us in his struggles to not only come to Christianity but also to live the Christian life after his conversion. He writes about his screw-ups, failures, and triumphs in such a humble, heart rendering manner I wish I had articulated it that way first. All Christians should have this book in their library to be read and re-read often. PAX, bb
Unique look into a brilliant mind  Mar 17, 2006
The Confessions offer a deep look into St. Augustine's mind as he battles through questions about time and memory. It is, quite personally, an account of a once atheist who, through tragedy and an insatiable desire for truth, becomes spiritually connected to God. Augustine presents age old questions about existence and purpose, and provides his own unique and intelligent viewpoint. Augustine's confessions are uplifting to read through, and his gentle and eloquent praises to God are remarkably written. I gave this book five stars, in light of its uniqueness and the personal betterment I felt when I read it.
A Niche Version of Primarily Devotional Interest   Mar 7, 2006
I, with other reviewers, was deeply disappointed to find that this book (purchased elsewhere) was an undisclosed abridged version of Augustine's work and had to re-acquire it. There is no excuse for omitting this fact everywhere but a brief mention in the forward. (Note: this is the reason for 4 *'s as I'd never be so presuptuous to give Augustine less than 5) The text is of little value for historical interest. There is no mention of his concubine and even the famous pear trauma of his youth is omitted. It is worth noting, however, what is included. In a very readable "translation," is much of his devotional prose and repeated prayers of exaltation, self evaluation and gratitude. So, despite my disappointment, I have actually started recommending this text for those who do not have a philosophical, theological or historical interest in the great church father but would be interested in exploring his writings devotionally. It serves a significant purpose as an accessible window to Augustine's spiritual life and will serve particular readers quite well.
Abridged Confessions  Jan 12, 2006
Nothing in the description indicates that this is heavily abridged. The introduction (after you've purchased the book) actually refers to this version not as translated (no translator is credited) but paraphrased. It is not even partitioned into St. Augustine's original 13 "books," but is instead resectioned with "new" chapter titles. I had to repurchase the book.
