    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

    Augustine's Confessions, especially in Chadwick's Translation and with Ferrone's soulful and penetrating narration, tells the story of the soul's journey back to God and the reflections, 25 years later, of God's gentle and merciful wooing of the lost and tattered self still bent on getting its own way.

    Augustine reveals the universal longing for a life of wholeness and his prayers and piercing honesty draw my tired heart into self awareness on many late nights when I have gotten "lost among the many" - to quote one of the innumerable brilliant psychological sayings.

    "Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you"
    "I was hiding behind myself and you turned me to face you"
    "You are closer to us than we are to ourselves"

    It's an indespensible part of my audio library and it opens my own heart to God when I am dry, angry, and needing a pathway back to my True Home.
