The Confessions (Paperback)
"The Confessions" is an autobiography by Saint Augustine of Hippo written in thirteen books. Originally published in classical Latin between AD 397 and 400, " The Confessions" is considered one of the first Western autobiographies ever written.

In the book, Augustine promotes moving away from a sinful, immoral lifestyle filled with sexual exploits into new beginnings fostered in the light of the Lord. "The Confessions" is an important text in Christian literature and religious study as it serves as a work aiding in the process of Christian conversion.
