This book is more of a history lesson than an examination of the writings and evolution of beliefs of St. Augustine. The author seems to genuinely dislike Augustine, and makes fun of him throughout the book. If you're hoping to gain more insight into the contributions Augustine made to Christianity, this is not the book for you.

If you could sum up St. Augustine in 90 Minutes in three words, what would they be?
aka Cliff Notes
Would you recommend St. Augustine in 90 Minutes to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes - I've listened to each book in the series about a major philosopher that is available on Audible. Strathern's books don't have the analytical depth found in Will Durant's "The Story of Philosophy" books, but he does a good job summarizing each philosopher's biography, major philosophical points, and criticisms. Additionally, Strathern's breadth is broader than Durant's in that he covers a greater number of philosophers. I believe that the time spent listening to these books has been well-spent.
My reviews for each book in the series about a philosopher are identical.
What about Robert Whitfield’s performance did you like?
Voice is clear, well-modulated, and easily understood, even at 1 1/2 speed.
