Augustine was writing an ideas book as opposed to a simple historical text. Augustine presents the four essential elements of his philosophy in The City of God; he writes about the church, the state, the City of Heaven, and the City of the World. Chronology is hence not conducive to exploring these ideas rather than examining wider themes which fluctuate over time.
