Publisher's Summary

A story of spiritual awakening, The Confessions of St. Augustine is a fascinating look at the life of an eminent Christian thinker. Widely seen as one of the first Western autobiographies ever written, it chronicles the life and religious struggles of Augustine of Hippo, from his days as a self-confessed sinner to his acceptance of Christianity as an older adult. Along the way he unveils his theological questioning of human existence and the essence and nature of God while providing influential philosophical arguments on creation and time. Augustine's sincere and inquisitive attitude will inspire any listener, regardless of faith. Translated by R. S. Pine-Coffin.

Very listenable translation.

While there are probably more poetic translations using more archaic language, this one is very listener friendly...perfect for Audible.

good

It's a classic work
I don't think I ever could have read it because the content can get pretty dry. I liked the narrator and would recommend it.

The first half is great

The first half of the story about his conversion and thoughts on confession and repentance. The second half is mostly philosophy and exegesis that is very meticulous and often tedious.
