John Chrysostom

John Chrysostom, Archbishop, (350 – 407 AD) – Known as one of the greatest preachers of all time, John’s nickname, “Chrysostom” means “golden tongue”. His sermons are full of wisdom and illustrations still used by pastors today. He grew up in a Christian home and was dissuaded by his mother from becoming a hermit. He eventually became the Bishop of Constantinople (today’s Istanbul, Turkey). He often preached against the politicians of his day who he believed were doing harm to the church and society. Eventually this led to his banishment. He once stated, “Preaching makes me well. As soon as I open my mouth to speak, all my weariness is gone.”
