My small group has been going through the Confessions of St. Augustine the last few months. We continued tonight. I really appreciate Augustine’s honesty, both about his questions in life and about his failures, all the more coming from a bishop.
While there are differences in culture and time, it’s amazing how many theological and life questions read the same. Some passages I’ve read are not much different than what I might read, or write, on a blog.
I’ve read lots of Christian books by modern writers over the years, but there’s something special about connecting with words from over 1600 years ago.
