This book examines John Chrysostom's role as preacher and his pastoral activites as deacon, presbyter and bishop. It also provides fresh and lively translations of a key selection of sermons and letters.
`This is a scholarly book, up to date with the latest research and showing an in-depth understanding'
`The translations are generally the authors' own, and it is refreshing to read them in modern English (and inclusive language)'
`The introduction covers reas not well served else where'
`In summary, this is a welcome work on the great preacher. The introductory chapters combine with the varied selections of texts to give an insight into Chrysostom and his world as they met in his preaching and pastoral care'
`It is hard to belive that the author of this kind of translations has been able to provide such a sound and correct introduction of them'
'… essential reading for all students of Chrysostum and of the fourth-century church.' - David Taylor, Reviews in Religion and Theology
