Product Description


In these 24 lectures, Professors Cook and Herzman lead you on a chapter-by-chapter analysis of one of history's most significant literary works. Written in the 4th century C.E., the Confessions is an opportunity to explore, in one book, questions that have been addressed in many books for more than a millennium. How should parents raise children? Why are we attracted to things that are forbidden, and how do we develop addictions? What is time? What is memory and what can it tell us? How can we understand God, or the nature of evil? How should we interpret scripture? What is true friendship? How should we deal with the death of a loved one? Follow along as Augustine addresses each of these issues, and many more, in a way that few thinkers have been able to equal. These lectures are designed to enable you to understand the Confessions as Augustine intended. An added benefit is that they cover all 13 books of the Confessions: the nine in which Augustine narrates the story of his life leading to his Christian conversion, and the four in which he meditates on time, memory, and scripture interpretation. The Confessions is a book that is as contemporary today as it was 1,500 years ago. And with these lectures, you'll approach it as a highly relevant and personally enriching work that can help you discover what's truly meaningful in your life.
