Biographies of St. John Chrysostom?
« on: December 28, 2009, 02:34:51 AM »
Can anyone recommend a good biography of St. John Chrysostom?


"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

The only biography of St. John that I've read was in the book The Lives of the Three Holy Hierarchs by Holy Apostles Convent. Included in the book are also biographies of Sts. Basil the Great and Gregory the Theologian, though the section on St. John is by far the longest (it seems to be about 180 pages).
