Gathering Clouds: A Tale of the Days of St. Chrysostom


Longman 1895

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Known for his eloquent preaching and public speaking, John Chrysostom was the archbishop of Constantinople and an influential early Church Father. He is recognized as a saint in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches and is one of the Three Holy Hierarchs along with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. Given to extreme asceticism, he lived as a hermit for two years before poor health forced him to return to Antioch, where he was ordained as a deacon—and later a priest—of the church at Antioch. His insightful expositions and discourses on the Bible made him a popular orator in the Church, and he was appointed archbishop of Constantinople in 397.
