Popular author and philosopher Peter Kreeft delves into one of the most beloved Christian classics of all time--Augustine's?Confessions. He collects key passages and offers incisive commentary, making?Confessions?accessible to any reader who is both intellectually curious and spiritually hungry.
The?Confessions?is a dramatic personal narrative of a soul choosing between eternal life and death, an exploration of the timeless questions great minds have been asking for millennia, and a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to God.?I Burned for Your Peace?is not a scholarly work but an unpacking of the riches found in Augustine's text. It is existential, personal, and devotional, as well as warm, witty, and thought-provoking. With Kreeft to guide them, readers of the?Confessions?can overhear and understand the intimate conversation between a towering intellect and the God whose peace he at last humbly accepts.
