The translation is glorious, the illustrations perfectly beautiful - overall, this edition of the Confessions is a lovely gift. However, this edition contains only excerpts from the Confessions, not the full text. It would not be valuable for class or research use, though it would appeal to those wishing to meditate on key passages.

Please note that my review refers to the Bargain Price Hardcover edition, not to the Chadwick translation itself, which is excellent for research use.

The expression of love for our lord from St Augustine is inspiring.

I recently finished reading a copy of Carolinne White's translation of extracts from "The Confessions of St. Augustine". I was quite pleased with the translation, and given how engagingly Augustine wrote, it was a rewarding book to read.

It needs to be understood that this is not a copy of the complete volume of St. Augustine's Confessions, but it includes considerable segments of that great literary work.

I liked the book and will give it a 5-star rating. I would recommend the book for anyone who's interested in the gist of St. Augustine's autobiographical writings, but who is not serious about reading the entirety of the work.

If you like a gift book format for the classic The Confessions of St. Augustine, this is a gorgeous edition. It contains "extracts selected and translated by Carolinne White."
I don't get the other reviewers for down grading this book because it is not the complete work. It was never intended and not published to be the entire Confessions. Most of the passages quoted are the highlights with the pages decorated like an illuminated medieval manuscript. The selected color paintings all highlight the passages and make this a lovely book to own.
I bought one for myself and will be giving them away as gifts too.
I wish this could be done to other "classics". The melding of text and masterpiece art is a great way to get people to read and enjoy the classics.

This is not the complete book but rather a few selections of St. Augustine's masterpiece. The selections highlight the depth and beauty of his writing and would make for a wonderful introduction to this book for anyone who hasn't read it. It is marvelously illustrated and the art really enhances the work.

This is a ninety-page collection of excerpts from the personal writings of Saint Augustinus, offering a revealing look into his experience and worldviews, his prayer life, and his sins and shortcomings. Almost every page has a beautiful medieval illumination, making this a lovely and wildly colorful book.

I only give it three stars because, considering that this is only a slice of his full work, I think I paid too much money for it. The artwork is why I give it 3 stars instead of 2.
Much of the 96 pages is taken up by religious artwork from various 15-century artists. The actual citations from Augustine's Confessions are disappointingly few. It's a very pretty book, and the citations that are included are quite powerful, but I purchased this book to read about Augustine's conversion, not look at pretty pictures.

I suppose if one wanted to get a brief summary of Augustine's conversion, than this is the book for you, but I also suppose at this low price, one not ought to expect too much.
