“You never go away from us, yet we have difficulty in returning to You. Come, Lord, stir us up and call us back. Kindle and seize us. Be our fire and our sweetness. Let us love. Let us run.” —Augustine, Confessions

Augustine’s Confessions represents a cornerstone of Western theological and philosophical thought. Widely recognized as the first Western autobiography, Confessions, which examines Augustine’s sinful youth and conversion to Christianity, represents the most complete record of any single person living in the fourth and fifth centuries. It’s considered the first text to examine the inner self—the idea that looking inward can bring you closer to God.

Augustine's Confessions and Select Letters

The title Confessions has multiple meanings: in Augustine’s time, “to confess” meant both to admit your sins to God and to praise God for his eternal love and forgiveness. Augustine also made his personal story public to combat the accusations of his critics: after all, he had a pagan-influenced education, believed in astrology, and, for a time, was a Manichaean. By confessing his story from sin to redemption, he was showing his critics his true nature and praising God for his conversion to Christianity.

The collection’s other works, Select Letters, offers 62 letters written by Augustine—a remarkable examination of his culture and how he dealt with its issues.

Augustine’s Confessions and Select Letters is not only a powerful narrative of the soul’s redemption, but also a stirring examination of some of the most significant questions of the Western tradition.

To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain: An Interview with Matt Chandler

iPad mini giveawayToday’s interview is with Matt Chandler, coauthor of The Explicit Gospel and author of the new book To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain. To help kick-start The Gospel Tour, featuring Chandler and Tullian Tchividjian, we’ve partnered with David C. Cook to give away Logos 5 Silver, an iPad mini, a Logos edition of Chandler’s new book, and a Vyrso edition of Tchividjian’s new book (One Way Love). Enter to win by November 14!

1. What inspired you to write your new book, To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain? 

To Live Is Christ

After I converted to Christianity, my development was built upon following a moral code.  I did some of it well, but struggled in other areas, which saturated my heart with guilt rather than conviction, and filled my life with shame rather than delight.  The Holy Spirit used Philippians to awaken my heart and fill my life with the things that made me marvel at God’s goodness and grace.

2. To Live Is Christ confronts the issue of spiritual development—what’s your best piece of advice for becoming a mature Christian? What do you envision a “mature Christian” to be? 

I believe the Bible teaches that if you fill your life with the things that stir your affections for Jesus and avoid the things that rob your affections, while simultaneously seeking to put your sin to death, you’ll mature in a more visible and manifest way.

3. Your book is grounded in Paul’s letter to the Philippians. How can Paul’s story help modern-day Christians grow in their faith? 

The story we read about in Philippians is our story. We were rescued by Christ, have a tendency to wander, and are helped and held by our redeemer. The implications of that shape everything else in our lives, from relationships to money.

4. Philippians 1 says: “to live is Christ, and to die is gain”—why did you name your book after this verse? What special meaning does it hold for you? 

I think everyone assumes that the title is tied to my battle with brain cancer, but it’s not. I think that that simple line encompasses almost everything I want: to have my life, family, and church shaped by, led by, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Meaning, we put Jesus at the focus of our lives and rejoice in the reality that death is dead.

5. What’s one thing you hope people walk away with from this book?

I want people walking away with hope—that the God who saved them has every intention of sanctifying them. It might not feel like a six-lane superhighway, but God is at work. Trust him, press into him; he cares for you.

6. How did the idea of The Gospel Tour get started? 

We (Tullian, David C. Cook, and Doug Hudson) began talking about what it might look like to try and encourage men and women with a night full of gospel goodness. My hope for the tour is my same hope for the book: to encourage the saints and be used by God as a conduit of hope in the journey toward Christlikeness.

Celebrate William Tyndale: Get 25% off His Works

William Tyndale

“Christ desires his mysteries to be published abroad as widely as possible. I would that [the Gospels and the epistles of Paul] were translated into all languages, of all Christian people, and that they might be read and known.”
—William Tyndale

Tomorrow marks the 477th anniversary of William Tyndale’s death. Reflect on his life and influence with The Works of William Tyndale —for 25% off!

You’ll get key pieces of Tyndale’s work and theology, including The Practice of the Prelates and The Obedience of a Christian Man, which was instrumental in King Henry VIII’s decision to separate the Church of England from Rome.

A game changer in Christian history

William Tyndale was one of the most important figures of the English Reformation and Western history as a whole. His English translation was the first complete Bible to be translated directly from the Greek and Hebrew into English. Coupled with the invention of the printing press, that translation made the Tyndale Bible the first-ever mass-produced English Bible—and made Scripture available to commoners for the first time in history.

Works of William TyndaleTyndale’s impact on the modern Bible can’t be overstated—research suggests that 83% of the King James Bible’s New Testament was taken verbatim from Tyndale’s work, and 76% of the Old Testament.

Despite Tyndale’s positive impact on spreading Christianity, the Roman Catholic Church saw his making the Bible available to commoners as a direct challenge to its authority. Because of this, in 1535, Tyndale was betrayed by a friend and turned into the authorities, and on October 6, 1536, he was condemned as a heretic and burned at the stake. Tyndale’s dying wish was that God would “open the King of England’s eyes,” and just two years later, his wish came to fruition: King Henry VIII authorized the “Great Bible,” largely made up of Tyndale’s work, to be read aloud in the Church of England.
