Here's Karlton's scoop:
Again - GO GET IT! Even if you're not going to listen to it for a while, you're not going to get it free again!
Every month, ChristianAudio gives away a premium audiobook download for free. The free download for month of August is The Confessions of Saint Augustine, narrated by Simon Vance.
Among the most important classics in Western literature and one of the first autobiographies ever, Confessions is a “warts and all” account of Saint Augustine’s uncertainty and earthly desires. He recounts how he discovers and cherishes a relationship with his God as the last corrupt days of the Roman Empire come to a close.
The audiobook is narrated by Simon Vance, one of the most celebrated narrators today who has over 400 audiobooks under his belt. The translation is as accessible as any 4th century book I’ve read (seriously, it’s quite good).
Downloading the audiobook was simple and quick. I got to choose between mp3 and m4p, and the audiobook comes in 10 files of approximately 70 minutes each. The sound is crisp and clear, and I must confess: I’m highly impressed.
