Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

Autch Press proudly presents this version of The Confessions of Saint Agustine (eg Confessions). It is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St.Augustine of Hippo, written between AD 397 and AD 398.

The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1000 years of the Middle Ages.

It is not a complete autobiography, as it was written in his early 40s, and he lived long afterwards, producing another important work (City of God); it does, nonetheless, provide an unbroken record of his development of thought and is the most complete record of any single person from the 4th and 5th centuries. It is a significant theological work. In the work St. Augustine writes about how much he regrets having led a sinful and immoral life. He discusses his regrets for following the Manichaean religion and believing in astrology.

Our books are specially published for you to have a light and pleasant experience, so we are at your disposal to help you if necessary.

Happy reading!

5.0 de 5 estrelas Understanding Augustine 12 de março de 2016
Por alan j. greczynski - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Augustine is an interesting person to say the least. Modern readers may have difficulty in understanding Augustine, for his world was very different but very much the same as ours. Augustine begins as a Christian then turns to Manichaeism. Manichaeism, like Gnosticism is competing with "orthodox" Christianity. Augustine is from the breadbasket of the Roman empire, North Africa. Thagaste, in modern day Algiers was a Christian city very different from modern Muslim Algeria. His mother Monica had a strong Christian background and looked to the day Augustine would "come around" back to Christianity. Growing up a "wunderkind" and attending the best schools gave Augustine a sort of "cockiness" to his character. Augustine had a relationship with a woman and a child by her (an almost "modern" relationship). It is in the parallels in our world (American empire) and the late Roman empire that is relevant for us today. Augustine, who is a deep thinker begins to ponder his own life and the life of the empire he lives in. He ponders the nature of sin, time and death. He comes back to Christianity and is baptized with his son. The death of his close friend and then son Adeodatus affect him greatly. These events, along with the "decaying" empire that is around him give rise to his work "City of God." Written in "Books" rather than chapters may seem odd to us moderns. His book Confessions is not an easy read for modern readers, but for those who seek his wisdom it is there.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Truth for all times. 9 de setembro de 2016
Por E. Joyce - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
While my review pales in comparison to the scholarly essays written in these reviews, I will allow the Holy Spirit to speak through this newborn in the faith. While I cannot comment on the accuracy or style of this translation like others, I can personally reflect. I had a personal connection to Augustine as I have struggled with some of the same sins as he did. Reading how he dealt with it was very helpful. Also when you take into account when this was written it is amazing the similarities of societies then and now, one would think it was a contemporary piece. The first half is an easy read, the later half is difficult and requires slow reading and reflection to understand. This is a must read as it is one of the earliest, non scripture, christian writings.

5.0 de 5 estrelas I do love the conversational tone of this translation 18 de março de 2016
Por Nora Svihl - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This is the edition I have decided to read after reading many reviews for other translations. I do love the conversational tone of this translation, but it still captures Augustine's cerebral and philosophical and even contemplative, rambling, beautifully poetic ramblings. The references to verses in the bible in parentheses as opposed to end notes really is useful, and Augustine's command of Scripture is unparalleled. You get the idea that he is at both writing his true confessions, honest as they are about sex and other sins, as well as a love letter to God, a philosophy treatise, and autobiography, a testimony of his journey to Christianity, and a historical capsule of the life of a young, educated, almost-aristocratic, young man in the early church in Greece and Rome. This book should be considered high priority reading for anyone interested in learning about Christianity, its origins, as well as those studying in more serious intent, such as theology.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Limpid Translation of a Great Christian Classic 24 de janeiro de 2016
Por Froggy - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
It might seem pointless to write a review of one of the cornerstones of Christian literature, yet I purchased this particular edition after struggling with the first chapter of the less expensive Kindle edition of the Pusey translation. I am glad I did. The grammar of Augustine's Latin Silver Age easily handles stylistic complexities that are not natural to modern English, and this translation by Henry Chadwick renders Augustine's prose brilliantly. It reveals not so much a saint with a tortured past as a passionate and thoughtful young man sustained and drawn by a love for truth, beauty, and friends on a journey in search of the source of them, which Augustine finds in the God preached by the Catholic faith. Unlike Newman's "Apologia pro Vita Sua," the "Confessions" are not a defense of a life so much as a hymn of praise of the one who led him and gave it meaning. Augustine realizes that nothing was happenstance, but that God walked with him throughout the journey. One could view this story as a journey from alienation to fulfillment, but abstractions sell it short. In many ways, it is a love story in which the protagonist overcomes difficulties to find his true love. In confessing his journey, Augustine reveals an astonishingly modern self-awareness. He understands himself as a person with a personal history, influenced both by social and cultural conditions and inner drives. Readers in our day may well find in him a mentor in their search for meaning in life. This book became a cornerstone of the Western Christian spiritual tradition and remains fundamental reading. I highly recommend this translation.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Translation got in the way of comprehension 7 de fevereiro de 2016
Por Dominic Antonacci - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
First off, you can't argue with the price, so give the book a shot and if the translation is too archaic for you, try a different version.

In the end, I couldn't handle the translation. I read the first 7 books with this translation, but the translation got in the way of understanding the book.

Other reviewers are right, the Thees and Thous start to disappear and you start to get used to the verb structure, especially if you read it slowly aloud. However, it's much harder to get used to the archaic words (like "fain") and sentences can be a bit convoluted. With effort, you can understand the text, but I got tired from internally converting it to modern English. I'd rather spend my efforts understanding the message of the book, not deciphering the text.
