‘Augustine: Conversions to Confessions,’ by Robin Lane Fox
Mihi quaestio factus sum. This Latin phrase bounces around the screen of my sleeping laptop, reminding me of something I know only too well: “I have become a problem to myself.” It comes from St. Augustine’s “Confessions,” his powerful spiritual autobiography that has shaped how Christians and non-Christians in the West have conceived of their life journeys for over 1,500 years. So successful is the book in making readers identify with the author that it has never gone out of print and never seems to age.
