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.

St Augustine of Hippo was the great Doctor of the Latin Church. Born in North Africa in AD 354, he was brought up as a Christian and at 16 went to Carthage to finish his education. Until 387, Augustine followed the Manichean religion and founded his own school of rhetoric in Rome. After his baptism, he returned to Africa and lived in the community he formed there until his death in 430. His written output there includes Confessions and City of God, among over 113 books. Henry Bettenson (1908-1979) was educated at Bristol University and Oriel College, Oxford. He taught Classics for 25 years at Charterhouse 'Documents of the Christian Church' and 'Early Christian Fathers'.
