Excerpt


I Corinthians 13 is one of the most frequently read chapters and remains one of the most important passages in all of Scripture. Unfortunately, it also remains one of the least followed teachings in Scripture as well. Fourth Century theologian John Chrysostom, known for his eloquence in preaching, reflects here upon the true implications of St. Paul's passage and reveals why there is great importance in understanding that "the greatest of these is love." With introduction by Frederica Mathewes-Green.

Excerpt


The sermons of St. John Chrysostom are cherished today as classical commentaries on the life and practice of Christian believer. Knowing well the realities of life in the world, the temptation of rich and poor alike, Chysostom, the great orator, in On Wealth and Poverty addresses the questions of wealth and poverty in the lives of people of his day. As the modern reader is confronted with his words today, it becomes apparent that we too are being addressed. St. John's words proclaim the truth of the Gospel to all people throughout all of time. Here in six sermons, the message of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is delivered with clarity, compassion, judgment and insight into the human dilemma.

Excerpt


John Crystotom, was a famous ascetic and preacher of the fourth/fifth century. This is the first comprehensive study of him in the English language in over a century. In the early chapters John Kelly highlights Chrystotom's youthful experiments with asceticism at Antioch in Syria, his six years as a monk and then a recluse in the nearby mountains. The central section of the book shows him as a fearlessly outspoken populist bishop of the capital. The final chapters reconstruct the plots that led to Chrystotom's downfall, the drama of his trial, and his exile and death.

Excerpt


Arguing that all Pauline interpretation depends significantly upon the ways in which readers formulate their own images of the apostle, Margaret M. Mitchell posits that John Chrysostom, the most profilic interpreter of the Pauline epistles in the early church, exemplifies this phenomenon. Mitchell brings together Chrysostom's copious portraits of Paul - of his body, his soul, and his life circumstances - and for the first time analyzes them as complex rhetorical compositions built open well-known conventions of Greco-Roman rhetoric. Two appendixes offer a fresh translation of Chrysostom's seven homilies de laudibus sancti Pauli and a catalog of color plates of artistic representation that graphically represent the author/exegete dynamic this study explores.

The second half of the fourth century was a turbulent time. Bishops came and went, monks rioted, and Christianity struggled to gain a foothold against competing religions. One of the most remarkable figures that came to dominate the ecclesiastical and political landscape was John Chrysostom. This book examines Chrysostom's role as a preacher and his pastoral activities as deacon, presbyter, and bishop. Mayer and Allen draw together the latest research on preaching, the preacher's audience, and pastoral care in a comprehensive introduction. They also provide fresh and lively translations of a key selection of John Chrysostom's sermons and letters.

Excerpt


The Cult of the Saints expanded rapidly in the fourth century---with Chrysostom's homilies serving as important witnesses to its growth. Originally focused on those who died confessing the faith, whether at the hands of Romans, Jews, or others, the cult came to embody public veneration of the departed and their related relics.
