The Confessions, is a worth reading Christian Classic. The volume is written by one of the most influential Western Church Fathers, Augustine.
The Confessions contains a lot of Augustine’s life, and his conversion, but more importantly it illustrates his theological themes, which eventually influenced Western thought. The last portion of the volume (book 11-13) is an impressive theological elaboration, which connects Genesis 1 (creation account) with other salvation aspects in the New Testament. Augustine in this last portion is inclined to the allegorical method of interpretation. I think he has gone too far though.
