Augustine's Confessions and Contemporary Concerns

Augustine's Confessions and Contemporary Concerns takes each of the thirteen books of Augustine's classic omnibiography to see how the major themes still speak to each of us today. The Bishop of Hippo never intended that the audience for his work be limited to himself and his contemporaries. He wrote on the perennial themes of childhood, humanity's search for meaning, the relationship between religion and science, and the nature of Christian conversion, as well as the philosophical implications of time, embodiment, of reading rightly, and many other longings that will always be found in the restless heart.

Accordingly, scholars expert in Augustine came together to ask what each book of his Confessions offer for the modern mind. These essays will shed insight on Augustine's master work, proving useful to readers of all levels, to those interested in both patrisitc theology as well as in contemporary questions of meaning.
