On Wealth and Poverty
by St John Chrysostom
translated by Catherine Roth

On Wealth and Poverty by St John Chrysostom translated by Catherine Roth
  • Description
  • Reviews

The sermons of St John Chrysostom are noted as classical commentaries on the Christian life. Knowing well the realities of life in the world, the temptation of rich and poor alike, this great orator — “the golden-mouthed” — addresses the questions of wealth and poverty in the lives of people of his day. And yet, as the modern reader is confronted with his words, it becomes apparent that he too is being addressed; Chrysostom's words are words proclaiming the truth of the Gospel to all people of all times. The message of the story of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is brought home to every person in these six sermons of Chrysostom with clarity, insight into the human dilemma, compassion and judgment.

On Wealth and Poverty is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.
