Augustine's Confessions: A Guide for the Uninitiated
This new, thoughtfully-edited edition of the Confessions is a 21st century translation of the text aimed specifically at the “uninitiated”—those with limited prior knowledge of early Christian doctrine or Augustinian theology. With helpful commentary and the inclusion of additional relevant primary sources, Augustine’s Confessions: A Guide for the Uninitiated makes it possible to read the Confessions in the way that Augustine originally intended: as a reflection of the reader’s own life and journey to self-realization.

A fascinating glimpse into an often underappreciated but vitally important period in Western Philosophy--the early Middle Ages--this text provides a background into the thought of five of the most important thinkers of this period that is a must for anyone seeking to understand the foundations of Medieval Christian thought.
