As relevant today as it was when it was originally written sixteen hundred years ago, Augustine's Confessiones continues to influence contemporary religion, language, and thought. Reading with fresh, keen eyes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Garry Wills has brought his superb gifts of analysis and insight to bear on this classic of Western tradition in a series of ambitious and critically acclaimed translations and interpretations. In Saint Augustine's Conversion, Augustine's story draws to its dramatic conclusion in what Wills calls the "hinge" chapter of the bishop's confessional opus. With an illuminating introduction and extensive notes throughout, Wills provides a richly rewarding and inventive interpretation of Augustine's seminal work for a new generation of readers.
