Augustine's Confessions by Garry Wills; Freelance Designer Daren Magee (Other)
Augustine's Confessions: A Biography
by Garry Wills; Freelance Designer Daren Magee (Other)
 

From Pulitzer Prize-winner Garry Wills, the story of Augustine's Confessions

In this brief and incisive book, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Garry Wills tells the story of the Confessions--what motivated Augustine to dictate it, how it asks to be read, and the many ways it has been misread in the one-and-a-half millennia since it was composed. Wills also addresses the reception of the book, from controversy in its own time and relative neglect during the Middle Ages to a renewed prominence beginning in the fourteenth century and persisting to today, when the Confessions has become an object of interest not just for Christians but also historians, philosophers, psychiatrists, and literary critics. With clarity and skill, Wills provides an unparalleled introduction to a spiritual classic that is one of the most important books in the Christian and Western traditions.
