"In this wonderful series of books, David Ford has curated and thematically organized delightful and thought provoking passages from St. John Chrysostom, the most prolific Greek Father of the Church and greatest Christian preacher in history. Dr. Ford has not only gathered the best of Chrysostom's insights but offers them in a fresh and new translation that captures Chrysostom's dynamic style. Dr. Ford's work is a wonderful gift to all of us who love Chrysostom and for all who yearn for increased availability of accurate and modern patristic translations." - Jeannie Constantinou
These delightfully compact volumes combine the accessibility of language with frankness of message that has made St. John Chrysostom dear to readers for generations. David Ford's new translation of selected passages from the "golden-mouthed" preacher's prodigious output preserves the immediacy of the original, bursting with enthusiasm for his listener's ear while remaining economical in the medium of communication.
Volume One open this series with a particular focus on the narrative of salvation history: the creation and fall of Adam, Christ's Incarnation, and man's redemption through the cross, burial, resurrection and ascension of the God-man.
A Foreword by Reverend Ignatius Green, Managing Editor of Saint Vladimir's Seminary Press, eloquently introduces the series.
