The Confessions, Hardback Book


"Spirituality involves taking our personal experience seriously as raw material for redemption and holiness, examining the material of our daily lives with as much rigor as we do Scripture and doctrine.

The Confessions is the landmark work in this exercise."--Eugene Peterson, from his book Take and ReadWritten in the waning days of the Roman era, Augustine's Confessions are the moving diary of a soul's journey.

From his earliest memories of childhood, through his turbulent and licentious youth, to his resolute conversion at the age of 32, Augustine traces a pilgrimage of unbounded grace.

Throughout, he passionately addresses the spiritual questions that have engaged thoughtful minds since time began. Every Christian library needs the classics--the timeless books that have spoken powerfully to generations of believers.

Now Hendrickson Christian Classics allows readers to build an essential classics library in affordable modern editions.

Each volume is freshly retypeset for reading comfort, while thoughtful new introductions place each in historical and spiritual context.

Attractive, classically bound covers look great together on the shelf.

Best of all, value pricing makes this series easy to own.

Planned to span the spectrum of Christian wisdom through the ages, Hendrickson Christian Classics sets a new standard for quality and value.
