    PDF/EPUB Augustine Conversions to Confessions MOBI ☆ õ ms style.pro augustine pdf, conversions free, confessions pdf, Augustine Conversions pdf, Augustine Conversions to Confessions KindleI was uite excited to read this book thinking that it was a biography of one of the leading philosophers of the Christian faith written by an atheist like myself Robin Lee Fox I loved his epic biography of Alexander the Great years ago Well in one sense I was disappointed because this is not a biography of Augustine of Hippo it is a lengthy study of the first of Augustine's great works Confessions That being said it is exhaustive in its look into Augustine's moral and religious odyssey from his Christian birth to his phase as a Manichaean his studies of Plotonius and his re conversion to 'Catholic' Christianity Along with the greekophiile Libineus whose life is also described in parallel to Augustine these are the first two writers to write intimate autobiographies something I was unaware of Augustine also had to contend w

    PDF/EPUB Augustine Conversions to Confessions MOBI ☆ õ ms style.pro augustine pdf, conversions free, confessions pdf, Augustine Conversions pdf, Augustine Conversions to Confessions KindleWould have made a good 300 page book As it stands too detailed frankly dull in large tracts Augustine comes across as intellectually very curious and wide ranging but also largely unpersuasive in most of what he writes RLF clearly thinks so with a distinctly unhealthy and obsessive attitude to sex presumably aided by a oppressively attentive mother with real Oedipal issues going on there Mind you compared to Jerome who seems somewhere between a repressed narcissist and an outright shit Augustine seems a model of sanity and good judgment

Not to mention that after all it was all so long ago and far away Like a lot of people I ow
