Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

St. Paul was the first to really define love. St. John Chrysostom unpacks it.

  
One of the most important passages in the Scriptures, First Corinthians 13 is often read and rarely followed. Medieval theologian, John Chrysostom, was called the "golden-mouthed" one, for the eloquence of his preaching. His reputation extended from his native East to the Christian West, and he is remembered today as a Church Father for the entire Church.
 
Now available in a popular contemporary English translation for the first time, The Love Chapter makes available these most important reflections of St. John, on a most important portion of the New Testament.

Author Bio

St. John Chrysostom (ca. 347-407) was the archbishop of Constantinople and was given by his contemporaries the Greek surname Chrysostomos, which means " golden-mouthed," for the beauty of his preaching. Churches in both the East and the West honor him as a saint.

    Chrysostom unpacks this text like no one I have ever seen before. Verse by verse he traces Paul's argument on love with conclusions that will convict and make one want to love people more than ever before. He takes his illustrations from biblical texts, and shows just how powerful love really is.This book is an excellent read, both Scholar and layperson alike will be able to easily follow Chrysostom through this text to a fuller understanding on the biblical concept of love.
