Preaching and popular Christianity : reading the sermons of John Chrysostom

Author: James Daniel Cook
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018.
Series: Oxford theology and religion monographs.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : First editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
This study reassess how we read Chrysostom's sermons, with a particular focus on the stern language which permeated his preaching, and on which the image of the contrary congregation is largely based. In doing this, it recovers a neglected portrayal of Chrysostom as a pastor and of preaching as a pastoral and liturgical activity.
