Overview This book is a work in the early life of Augustine, shortly after his conversion, which contains all the seeds contained in his future writings, especially the notion of the inner teacher. In this work, we see Augustine as a philosopher, a thinker, a budding theologian. We also see him as a person preparing for baptism, shedding the "old man" and putting on the new one, reaching for the God of truth for whom he had searched for many years. It is his prayer to our God of love and mercy.
