In Book X of the Confessions, Augustine asks a fundamental question: What,
then, do I love when I love my God? Indeed, much of Augustines reflections
concern his struggle, along his spiritual journey, with false or distorted
understandings of God. In your paper, first, note some of those false or
inadequate notions discussed in the Confessions, then summarize what
Augustine believes is a more adequate account of what Christians love when
they say they love God. Consider whether there are similarly distorted notions
of God still being encountered in our world today. To what extent does
Augustines account of God respond to your own answer to the question:
What, then, do I love when I love my God?
