Like the first Hackett edition of the Augustine's Confessions , the second edition features F. J. Sheed's remarkable translation of this classic spiritual autobiography with an Introduction by noted historian of late antiquity Peter Brown. New to this edition are a wealth of notes on literary, philosophical, biblical, historical, and liturgical topics by Michael P. Foley, an Editor's Preface, a map, a timeline, paragraph numbers in the text, a glossary, and a thorough index. The text itself has been completely reset, with textual and explanatory notes placed at the foot of the page for easy reference.

Reviews:
Saint Augustine's Latin presents notable difficulties for translators. And even good English translations have usually dated badly. Frank Sheed's, which I read a mere fifty years ago, still shows no signs of dating. It captures Augustine's extraordinary combination of precise statement and poetic evocation as does no other. --Alasdair MacIntyre
Augustine's sublime Confessions fairly ring with the music of a baroque eloquence, lavish and stately. F. J. Sheed's ear for that music makes this translation a memorable opportunity to hear Augustine's voice resonating down the years." --James O'Donnell
