  2. On Wealth and Poverty

    On Wealth and Poverty

    $25.95

    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.

  3. Three Treatises on the Divine Images, by St John of Damascus

    Three Treatises on the Divine Images, by St John of Damascus

    $24.95

    "Is all Christian art fundamentally blasphemous?" That was the question posed aggressively by the Christian iconoclasts of the eighth century in a bitter controversy. The resounding answer "No" from John of Damascus helped to secure the future of art in their service of Christ. Without his brilliant defence, both profound and at times earthy, we might well have ahs no icons, murals, and mosaics in churches to elevate and enrich our spirits. This fresh and complete translation by a distinguished patristic scholar, of John's three treatises on the divine images shows us the issue at stake both then and now. Professor Loath places all of us who care about them in his debt.' - Lionel Wickhan, formerly Lecturer in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge Learn More
