Reviews - What do customers think about The Confessions of St. Augustine?

Confessions of St Augustine  May 2, 2008
This is a ninety-page collection of excerpts from the personal writings of Saint Augustinus, offering a revealing look into his experience and worldviews, his prayer life, and his sins and shortcomings. Almost every page has a beautiful medieval illumination, making this a lovely and wildly colorful book.

I only give it three stars because, considering that this is only a slice of his full work, I think I paid too much money for it. The artwork is why I give it 3 stars instead of 2.
