The Confessions is a very human and poetic account .,
By A Customer
This review is from: Confessions (Hardcover)
The Confessions is a strangely vulnerable and lyrical account on a subject where we would expect dogmatism and grandiosity. Despite the "St." in front of his name Augustine comes across as the kind of slob that we might run across at any time. He reminds us of ourselves. Here we do not find certitude or self-satisfaction only a weird kind of singing, of phrasing, of worship. What we find here is a book of poetry.
