What do these statements tell us about Augustines life: where I found myself in a cauldron of lust: caught up in the coils of trouble; I exhausted myself in depravity; could the life I led be called a life?
Look at the paragraph in chapter 3 that begins Besides these pursuitsto the end of the paragraph. What is Augustine telling us about himself, about his peers?
In chapter 4 Augustine mentions the book Hortensius. What is the book? Why is it important to him? What is he seeking? In chapter 5 why does he turn to Scripture? How does he first respond to Scripture? Why does he respond to Scripture this way? How do you respond to Scripture?
Look at chapter 7 first paragraph: what is Augustine telling us about his reasoning? About the nature of God? About evil? About himself?
In chapter 8&9 he outlines sin. How does he categorize sin? What do you think sin is? Do you agree with his categories?
What does Augustine tell us about his mother in chapters 11 & 12. How would you characterize Monica? What kind of mother do you think she is?

In chapter 2 what does Augustine tell us about his life?
Read chapters 4-13 carefully. What happens to Augustines friend? What is the impact on Augustine? What does Augustine show and tell us about friendship, love, loss and grief in these chapters?
