Six Books On the Priesthood

   
St John Chrysostom
Translated with an Introduction by Graham Neville

Number 1 of Popular Patristics Series

“Much[...]which the reader will find here à propos the episcopal order can be applied with little variation to the parish priest of to-day. [...T]he priest, and indeed the layman, will find much that is helpful and suggestive, as well as much that warns of dangers, in the discursive thought of so warm and human, so intelligent and spiritual an observer of the Church as John Chrysostom. The case for reading this work[...]rests fundamentally on the fact that, whatever the differences of age or nation, the ministry is always and everywhere the same ministry of Word and Sacraments, and has always and everywhere the same challenge and hope—to bring men and women to Christ, that he may do his own strange work in their lives.”
—“Preface”
