CONFESSIONS OF ST. AUGUSTINE

One of the great autobiographies of Catholic Christianity. Written about A.D. 400, Augustine's life story is a masterpiece of theological synthesis woven around the theme of his conversion from unbelief and Manichaeism to the Christian faith. Its central theme is the necessity of divine grace to cope with human weakness, and the power of this grace to transform a sinner into a saint.
