Tell others about Jesus like St. Augustine did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

(Written: Ca. 390 A.D.)

Author: Saint Augustine

Translated by: Maria Boulding, O.S.B.

"My heart was restless, 'till it found its rest in thee."

-Augustine of Hippo ______________________

...the first true autobiography in Western literature...

"Writing in the last years of the fourth century A.D., St. Augustine of Hippo created what is at once the first true autobiography in Western literature and among the most sophisticated yet accessible theological arguments in the history of Christianity.

...from a life of sensuality, Manichaean superstition, and empty careerism to a genuine spiritual awakening...  

With extraordinary candor and psychological acumen, Augustine recounts his passage from a life of sensuality, Manichaean superstition, and empty careerism to a genuine spiritual awakening, and he articulates views on marriage, morality, and faith that have shaped our discourse ever since.  

...the startling modernity of Augustine's insights...

The Confessions allows us to appreciate both the startling modernity of Augustine's insights and the imperishable poetry of his voice.
