5.0 out of 5 stars great translation of a timeless classic, 11 Mar 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There have been many English translations of the Confessions over the centuries but this one by John K. Ryan is the best I've come across so far. The language is neither archaic nor pedestrian and I feel it manages to capture something of the original Latin in what I have read of it so far.(My Latin is not good enough yet to read the entire thing in the original but I hope to be able to someday!)One of the other things I really like in this edition is that Mons Ryan references St. Augustine's scripture quotations and were appropriate or necessary he elaborates in the notes section on points made by St. Augustine.
