"These ably selected excerpts are like a string of pearls radiant with Chrysostom's reflections on the words and deeds of the Savior. Readers will find Chrysostom excellent company in their daily devotions." -Fr. Theodore Stylianopoulos, Archbishop Iakovos Professor of Orthodox Theology and New Testament, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
Of all the homilies of St. John Chrysostom, those on the Gospel of Matthew are most celebrated. In the thirteenth century Thomas Aquinas declared he would give "the whole town of Paris" for these homilies. From the earliest centuries, they have been translated into many languages, ye tthere has been no modern English translation of these precious works until now.
This vibrant and graceful rendering of selections from Matthew's homilies by Robert Charles Hill makes it abundantly clear why the brilliant fourth-century preacher came to be known as Golden Mouth.
Robert Charles Hill has written extensively on St. John Chrysostom. His translations of Chrysostom include a three-volume series of homilies on the Old Testament and a two-volume series of commentaries on the Psalms.
