Product Information

This book is very personal, in fact it is his litany of repentance, and every reader should feel the urge to join him in confessing sin against a holy and gracious God.

The Confessions of St. Augustine is a noteworthy Christian classic. Written 1,600 years ago, as an autobiography, this book shows the work of the Lord's grace in irresistibly drawing Augustine to Himself.

The book exposes Augustine's innermost questions about life, his relationships with his closest personal acquaintances, and the events, people, and Scripture God employed in his conversion.

Although this book provides us with rich insight into the life and times of one of the greatest theologians and prolific writers of Christ's church, it also teaches us great lessons about the total depravity of man and the awfulness of sin.

Young (unbelieving) Augustine's ungodly, sinful lifestyle, is eventually productive of his realization of sin's dominion over him, his apprehension of God's mercy in Christ. His struggle with sin should be instructive to every believer. Augustine had known the temptations to sin, the power of sin, the consequences of sin, and his own personal wretchedness. He was deeply grateful for his glorious salvation and the brethren God used in effectually calling him to Himself.

In a day of rampant blame shifting, in a day in which sin and personal accountability to God are often downplayed or not even discussed, the Confessions of St. Augustine is a refreshing reminder: Please read Psalm 51:5; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9; and 1 John 1:9.

This book is important reading. It has rightfully ranked very highly among believers for many centuries. It truly belongs in every Christian's bookcase. Most Reformed, Calvinistic communions look to Augustine as the most explicit of the early fathers to emphasize the Doctrines of Grace from the Bible. John Calvin credited Augustine with inspiring him to produce his Institutes of the Christian Religion.

Augustine (354?430) was an influential, saintly pastor in North Africa. Although the Roman Catholic Church claims him as their own, and his City of God seems to agree with their views of church government, at the time of Augustine the RC church had not become universal, and it cannot be said truthfully that Augustine was RC.  160 pages, blue linen hard cover
