In Saint Augustine's Confessions, he 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. He writes about Nebridius's role in helping to persuade him that astrology was not only incorrect but evil, and Saint Ambrose's role in his conversion to Christianity. The first nine books are autobiographical and the last four are commentary and significantly more philosophical.

Absolutely beautiful rendition of a classic text
Saint Augustine's Confessions is one of the foundational texts of Western civilization, and an invaluable part of a thoughtful life. While I've always read the Confessions before in text, hearing it spoken in an audiobook is a profoundly moving experience.
Greg Rizzo does an excellent job as a narrator. He speaks slowly and well, and enunciates without dramatic pauses or breathy transitions.
Highly recommended. I really enjoyed this book.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
