August Resources on Formed
The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered one of the greatest Christian classics of all time.

His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions.
When the empire decides to take over the Christian basilica, Augustine prepares to give the speech of a lifetime, one that will slow the rising tide of Christianity’s influence. With his devout Mother Monica, and the unwavering Bishop Ambrose on one side and the empire’s loyal soldiers on the other, Augustine must choose whom he will serve.
