Can any praise be worth of the Lord's majesty?
The autobiographical account of St. Augustine's conversion to Christianity.
So this is a really odd thing to review and I don't really know what I should say about it. Also, I thought it was funny putting a spoiler alert on this post, but I like continuity and as all my other reviews have one this needed one too. But still, it's funny: spoiler alert! St. Augustine becomes a Christian! What a surprise!!
I was surprised at how easy this was to read. Some of the theological and philosophical puzzles Augustine was grappling with I might not have totally understood, but as far as the events and what they meant to Augustine go, I'm pretty sure I got a solid grasp. And...yeah. That's about all I have to say. Anyone interested in early Christianity, this is a pretty compelling read.
