Episode 4: John Chrysostom


St. John Chrysostom’s unmatched skill in public speaking led him to become one of the most famous preachers in his own day and in ours. Paradoxically, it also led to his own death. Listen to this episode to find out how he became such a great speaker, what he thought about wealth and poverty, and why some scholars think he is responsible for the Holocaust.
