Quick Overview

Christian tradition often seems to give only grudging approval to the married life, particularly its sexual aspect. In these sermons of St John Chrysostom we find an important corrective to this view. Although himself a monk, he had a profound understanding of the needs of his congregation. Inspired by the epistles to the Corinthians and Ephesians, he discusses their reasons God instituted marriage — primary to promote holiness of the husband and wife, and only secondarily to produce children.

In these sermons of St John Chrysostom we find an important corrective to this view. Although himself a monk, he had a profound understanding of the needs of his congregation. Inspired by the epistles to the Corinthians and Ephesians, he discusses their reasons God instituted marriage — primary to promote holiness of the husband and wife, and only secondarily to produce children.

St John Chrysostom goes on to discuss sexual relations, the mutual responsibilities of marriage, and parenting. While parts of his sermons may seem limited to his own time, the vast majority of his advice has timeless relevance for the Christian family.
