Too detailed and slow moving.
Too detailed and slow moving. So many small files, hard for me to keep track of on mp3 player.

Very Interesting read
The language does require careful listening as the style is not modern. It is a glimpse into a world that is very different and yet very similar to today.

I enjoyed it and am more interested in what Christianity actually looked like in the days of the early church fathers.

great bio, but unengaging philosophy
I really enjoyed listening to the first part of the audiobook edition of Augustine's Confessions, which is an account of his life story, objections to Christianity, the pride and vanity of the world of rhetoric in his time, and his eventual coming to faith. Fascinating stuff. That was about the first 60% of the book.

In the second half of the book, however, Augustine lost me. He waxes philosophical about the nature of time, memory, and other things, with only occasional reference to his life, or even anything else practical for that matter. Maybe this philosophers would like this but I struggled to stay interested and eventually stopped listening somewhere between the 80-90% mark.

Good News For Previous Reviewer Mark
Hey Mark!

I tracked down the written translation that matches this magnificent audiobook narrative:

What you're after is the Hendrickson Christian Classics edition, edited by Albert Cook Outler.

It is available both as a hardcover book AND as a Kindle ebook.

So there you go!
