This 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. Contributors include: Todd Breyfogle, Pamela Bright, Phillip Cary, John C. Cavadini, Frederick Crosson, Leo Ferrari, Robert P. Kennedy, Thomas Martin, Charles T. Mathewes, Robert McMahon, Kim Paffenroth, Eric Plumer, and James Wetzel.
Kim Paffenroth is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Iona College, New Rochelle, New York, and is author of Judas: Images of the Lost Disciple, from Westminster John Knox Press.
Robert P. Kennedy is Assistant Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.
