I grew up Christian and went to a Christian college (Wheaton), but somehow never read this classic of Christian literature. Augustine was a 5th century teacher, writer, and bishop who was later canonized. His major works are "City of God" and "Confessions," which is often considered the first autobiography. It's both a book of spiritual education and a redemption narrative. While there are reasons for the non-Christian to read it, it's loaded with scripture and is, well, preachy. Augustine was bishop of Hippo, which is in present day Algeria, although seemingly all the artwork depicts him as white. Also see "Imitation of Christ" and "Dark Night of the Soul" for more spiritual enlightenment.
