    Saint Augustine is one of history's most prolific geniuses. With great eloquence and passion, his Confessions - a masterpiece of Western literature - explores enduring questions that continue to stir millions. Perhaps the most moving record of a soul's journey to grace, Confessions appears midway in Saint Augustine's prodigious body of theological writings and remains his most influential work.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Richard Ferroneā€™s performance did you like?

    He knows what he's reading and he reads it well. I feel as if St. Augustine were talking directly to ME.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
