It is also a brilliant work of theology that helped set the foundation for much of modern Christian thought. nbsp; In a series of thirteen books,Saint Augustinedisplays a profound and searching intellect as he examines his life: his early memories of growing up in Roman North Africa during the fourth century A.D., his disgusted response to his mothers faith, his agonies and sins as a student, and finally his dramatic conversion in a garden in Milan. Along the way, theConfessionsexplores with great force and artistry the nature of time, mind, and memory, and lays out Augustines interpretation of the Book of Genesis. Throughout, Augustines remarkable depth of thinking is matched only by his elegance of expression, which has powerfully moved readers for more than 1500 years. A timeless classic, theConfessionsremains an unforgettable portrait of an individuals struggle for self-definition in the presence of a powerful God. nbsp; Mark Vesseyis Professor of English at the University of British Columbia.
