Description

A story of spiritual awakening, The Confessions of St. Augustine is a fascinating look at the life of an eminent Christian thinker. Widely seen as one of the first Western autobiographies ever written, it chronicles the life and religious struggles of Augustine of Hippo, from his days as a self-confessed sinner to his acceptance of Christianity as an older adult. Along the way he unveils his theological questioning of human existence and the essence and nature of God while providing influential philosophical arguments on creation and time. Augustine's sincere and inquisitive attitude will inspire any listener, regardless of faith. Translated by R. S. Pine-Coffin.

Very listenable translation.

While there are probably more poetic translations using more archaic language, this one is very listener friendly...perfect for Audible.

good

It's a classic work
I don't think I ever could have read it because the content can get pretty dry. I liked the narrator and would recommend it.

amazingly relevant

Absolutely fascinating that a book written well over fifteen hundred years ago is still relevant and in many ways profound even in light of modern religious thinking as well as scientific gains. i really enjoyed this, although I will admit it took me quite a while to get all the way through it as it is very dense

The narration gives life to Augustine's confession

The book by itself would have been packed with golden nuggets of truth and perspective. However, Mark Meadows' narration brings the book to life. You can hear the sorrow, confusion, gut-wrenching internal debates and wholehearted praise of God and Jesus in his voice. I felt as though I was back in 400 AD listening to the studied philosopher expanding on his ideas and realizations. The book gives listeners a lot to think about and it's evident that many of the truths Augustine uncovered centuries ago are still relevant today.

Very clear translation and narration

It was a pleasure to listen to Pine-Coffin’s clear translation and Meadows’ reading of August line’s Confessions. I highly recommend complementing reading this classic with hearing it in this audio recording.

Deepened my desire to take a serious examen

A great translation and interpretation of this classic reading. It really brought my need for complete contrition for my sinful life. St Augustine and I share similarities in our early lives. I suspect that anyone can relate to some aspect of his Confession.

Mostly good

I really like parts of this book. Certain parts resonate with me and I can acknowledge the truth in many sections. Particularly the part when he says (more or less), "You have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." That said, his interpretation of Genesis is totally wack. I thought the narrator fit the book well. The chapter break down doesn't make sense to me. It would be nice if there were some explanation of how chapters are broken down so that we can switch from audio book to physical book and vice versa without to much difficulty.

God’s grace is sufficient for us all.

One of the most compelling books I’ve read. Contemporary Christianity is often very disconnected from the world of the Early Church, and yet, Augustine’s words describe a world that is very much like ours. Truly there is “nothing new under the sun.” There is much comfort and reassurance in this man’s incredible story of faith for any Christian who reads/listens to this. God’s grace is faithful throughout the ages.

(Also, in terms of the audio narration, this recording absolutely deserves five stars.)

Synopsis

The earnest reflections of a lover of God. As subtle as the most meticulous philosophers, with as much resolve as the most ardent Apostles. Bravo Sir Augustine! You’ve lived up to the legendary name history has awarded you-
