Burton's book shows the complexity, subtlety and newness of Augustine's writing and philosophical insight * Father Anthony Dykes, The Classical Review *
Philip Burton has written a throughly researched book that is sure to impress any reader of Augustine who appreciates both the nuances of language and the subtlety of argument weaved within Augustine's writings... this book is a must read read for those who wish to gain a deeper and richer appreciation Augustine's Confessions. * The Heythrop Journal *
Burton's book is a creative addition to the scholarship on the Confessions, well worth reading in its entirety by specialists onAugustine, but as articles, too, by any with interests in the individual topics...The result is unusual, welcome, and refreshing...a fine example of what can result from getting a different pair of eyes with a different methodology to work on a renowned and overworked canonical text. * Dan Uta Shanzer American Journal of Philology *
