I've tried reading "Confessions" on two separate occasions, but failed miserably because the content is so deep and rich... and I didn't have time or energy to persevere. But the audible book is fantastic! I can listen on my Kindle while getting ready in the morning, switch over to my iPhone app in the car traveling to work, and pick up where I left off on my way home, and listen on my Kindle while making dinner. I'll finish this audiobook in less than three days and am excited to one day see the new film, "Restless Heart" based on this book. The narrator does an EXCELLENT job... he doesn't just read the words on the page, the feelings and emotions seep in and enrich your listening experience.
This reads like a modern book. Human nature remains the same after 1600 years--St. Augustine could be someone you pass on the street, supermarket, or see at the post office.
He knows what he's reading and he reads it well. I feel as if St. Augustine were talking directly to ME.
St. Augustine's conversion event actually brought tears to my eyes. Not too convenient because I was driving at the time, but the moment was portrayed brilliantly by Richard Ferrone.
If someone doesn't have time to read "Confessions" I absolutely recommend they listen to this audiobook. The spiritual nourishment I've received from this book is immeasurable! I only gave it a 5-star rating because there wasn't anything higher.
