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.

MEDIA 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
