Lecture no. 19 from the course: St. Augustine's Confessions
Taught by Professor William R. Cook and 1 others | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
In Book X, Augustine leaves the past to reflect on his present. He tells us his flock should know who its bishop is. He presents himself as one who is still struggling, still subject to temptations. Thus this book provides a powerful interpretation of conversion as a continual struggle.
