  • Description
  • Reviews

A study of the life and writings of St. John Chrysostom by the author of Early Christian Doctrines and Early Christian Creeds.

"Eminently readable and engaging, this account. . . of the life and times of the Golden-Mouthed preacher is peppered throughout with especially fine, spiritual quotations and a host of delightful stories, all of them inciting the reader to read St. John Chrysostom for himself. . . . Golden Mouth is extremely well written and, I think, for an academic work of this type, generally sympathetic towards its subject. . . . Kelly sketches a fascinating, historical image. . . ." — The Harvest, a publication of the Monastery of the Glorious Ascension. December, 1999.
