St. Augustine's Confessions

This is one of those tomes that I've managed to avoid all my life. Disadvantage me. I got motivated to give it a go when then men's reading group at church (which I cannot attend due to timing) took it up. So, after the intro and three full chapters, I'm all in. Pretty heavy, lots of references, fascinating ideas, phrases that turn in all manner of ways. Very religious, obviously, so don't be surprised. I even got excited telling Lynn she might want to plow through the first chapter or two because of the babyhood, parenting, learning, discipline, and related topics covered.
