Golden Mouth: The Story of John Chrysostom, Ascetic, Preacher, Bishop

Golden Mouth: The Story of John Chrysostom, Ascetic, Preacher, Bishop
Publisher: Cornell University Press | ISBN: 0801431891 | edition 1995 | PDF | 310 pages | 46 mb

No other author has delved so deeply into the life and work of this complex, influential, and tragic figure of the fourth century and produced such a far-ranging but precise, solidly researched, and eminently readable account. Chrysostom emerges as a sympathetic and tragic figure of great integrity, whose human failings contributed and perhaps led to his downfall. Kelly has used a careful analysis of many of John's writings and sermons to present new insights and to confirm details of Chrysostom's life previously considered doubtful; his comments and summaries stimulate one to turn to the originals. Those who are interested in Chrysostom or in this historical period must read this book.
