In this volume from the Fathers of the Faith series, you'll be introduced to Saint John Chrysostom. Who was he? What did he teach? Where and when did he live? Why is he an important figure in the history of the Church?
In this accessible, bite-sized introduction, renowned author, speaker, and host Mike Aquilina gives an overview of John's life in Antioch and then Constantinople in the fourth and fifth centuries. Known to history as "golden-mouthed" because of his eloquent preaching, he is one of the most celebrated preachers of sermons in the history of the world and was also a prolific author.
A Doctor of the Church, Saint John Chrysostom is remembered for his ascetical life and his courage. In the East, he is honored among the Three Holy Hierarchs. In the West, he is known as the Eucharistic Doctor. As archbishop of Constantinople, he was a figure of controversy, always in the middle of an argument with the powerful. He was a great figure in his time, and an even greater one after.
