By St John Chrysostom
translated by David C. Ford
This delightfully compact volume combines 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.
This volume marks the first of several, particularly focusing 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.
