Publishers Description
Augustine's Confessions is both a Christian classic and a literary masterpiece. But it has never been as accessible?or relevant?to young adult readers than it is, now. The Confessions chronicles the youthful adventures and inner spiritual turmoil of one of the greatest and most influential theologians in the history of the Christian church. From musings on the trust he held for his mother at birth, sexual liaisons with various women as a teenager, an infamous episode of feeling guilt-ridden after stealing from a neighbor, to his ultimate and dramatic conversion at age thirty-three, Augustine bears his heart in these pages. Now, for the first time, the first eight books of the Confessions are gathered here in a modern-day translation, with an introduction and over seventy annotations to aid young adults in approaching this spiritual classic for the first time.

Reviews - What do customers think about You Converted Me: The Confessions of St. Augustine (Classics of Christian Faith for Today's Readers)?

Confessions of Saint Augustine  Jul 29, 2006
While it is best to read a person's book in the language it was originally written, this translation of The Confessions of St. Augustine is for those of us who never learned Latin. The translation by Robert Edmonson is in very readable modern English. Also included are an introduction and notes by Tony Jones that transform this book into a painless introduction to Augustine.

The notes are fantastic. In recent times footnotes have moved from the bottom of each page to the end of books with the result that they are rarely read. Mr. Jones overcomes this difficulty by interspersing his notes within with the text. Most are placed at the end of a passage, helping to make understandable what was just read, but some give needed information for what is to follow.

This method works very well and most should find there is no need to do further research to understand what Augustine is talking about.

Even though separated by more than 1,600 years, anyone will feel an immediate connection with Augustine's feelings and emotions as he tries to explain his innermost thoughts.
