Product Description

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.
