An autobiographical account of Augustine's tempestuous early life until his conversation to practising the Catholic faith enthusiastically. It provides a vehicle for the development of his thought, featuring deep theology and spiritual insights.

St Augustine was born in 354 and died in 430AD and is a Father of the Catholic Church. Not only it is considered to be the first Western autobiography ever written, but this forthright description of a sinful life forever changed by grace is one of the greatest works of literature the world has ever seen.
