Publisher's Summary

St. Philaret of Moscow is the Russian Chrysostom. His mouth overflowed from a heart enlarged and illumined by the Holy Spirit, and his teaching has been a fountain of life to the Christian generations that have succeeded the great bishop. 

Here, for the first time in an English-language translation, we have a thematic collection of his sermons dedicated to living the Christian life.  

The master pedagogue covers numerous foundational spiritual realities including being born again, building a life upon the foundation of the fear of God, the centrality of gratitude, the cultivation of zeal, the purification of the heart, the nourishing of poverty of spirit, as well as more targeted subjects such as childbearing, work, preparations for prayer, and how to consecrate Sunday to God.  

This audiobook contains a feast of faith and soul guidance that, if followed, will bring forth abundant spiritual treasure.

The Russian Chrysostom

A very unique offering from Patristic Nectar Publications that graces the English-speaking world with an audio sampling of the homiletical gifts of the Russian "golden mouth." Fr Josiah, himself no mean preacher, provides a more than palatable listening experience.

Magnificent

Wonderfully translated and powerfully delivered! The introduction alone is enough to bring you towards the threshold of this divinely inspired man. However, since the material that is covered is so rich and soul-provoking, I recommend adjusting the speed of reading in your settings. (I would do the same for the latest Jordan Peterson, as well.:)

A treasure trove of great teaching.

I came across Josiah Trenham first on You Tube and from there moved on to his excellent book 'Rock and Sand'. I was delighted to find that Josiah has released this new book and to discover St. Philaret who I had no knowledge of until this, Christians of any denomination could benefit from this set of Orthodox teachings. I'd also recommend books from 'Ancient Faith'.

A must listen for all Orthodox Christians

I found this a very edifying listen which covers a lot of basic Christian principles.
