    DescriptionThis book is a tool for teaching and studying the great Christian classic, Augustine's Confessions. It is a unique venture in which thirteen different scholars look at each of the thirteen books in the Confessions and interpret their chapters in light of that book and in light of the rest of Augustine's work. The result is that the richness and ambiguity of Augustine's work shines through as well as the richness and ambiguity of different readings of the Confessions.

    Review quote
    "This is an imaginative approach to the Confessions in which we experience a variety of 'readings' of the Confessions with each writer asking how this particular book might be considered the 'climax' or 'center' or 'key' to the entire work. We are led through careful analyses of Augustine's style, we hear echoes from one book in another, and we gain several suggestions about the structure of the work as a whole.
