CONFESSIONS BY SAINT AUGUSTINE TRANSLATION BY HENRY CHADWICK
In this masterpiece of Western literatrure, the brilliant and impassioned descriptions of Augustine`s colourful early life and search for spiritual satisfaction are accurately conveyed to the English reader. Augustine tells of his wrestlings to master his sexual drive, his rare ascent from a humble Algerian farm to the edge of the corridors of high power at the imperial court at Milan, and his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage as he recovered the faith his mother Monica had taught him.
