Augustine of Hippo (354-430), also known as Saint Augustine, was an early Christian theologian whose writings greatly influenced the development of Western Christianity. The son of a pagan father and a Christian mother, Augustine spent his early years torn between conflicting faiths and worldviews. His Confessions, written when he was in his 40s, tell how, slowly and painfully, he turned away from his youthful ideas and lust-filled lifestyle to become a staunch advocate of Christianity and one of its most important thinkers. Confessions is a remarkably honest and revealing spiritual autobiography, and many of its prayers and meditations are still an integral part of Christianity today.

Augustine's reflections on his life in the light of scripture and the presence of God show how you can rest securely in Jesus, discern good from evil, avoid false spiritual pursuits, and know the will of God. Augustine confesses not only his sins but even more the greatness of God. Just as Augustine did, you can experience the unspeakable joy of being pure and righteous before God, regardless of your past.
