A good translation.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Confessions (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
It is good to have an alternative to the 1961 translation by R S Pine-Coffin. This from Oxford World Classics by Henry Chadwick dates from 1992, it is not new but is highly readable. I found the footnotes very informative and they made a significant contribution to my understanding of the background and context to the text and also many issues that Augustine raises that may not be familiar to the non-specialist.
