    A description of what a true Christian love ought to beExcellent book A must read It speaks of what true christian love really is This is pretty much st John Chrysostom commentary on 1Cor 13 which can probably freely found on any patristics site or any site that has commentaries of St John Chrysostom

    The Love Chapter by St John Chrysostom “The Love Chapter” is a collection of sermons written and delivered by St John Chrysostom the 4th century Archbishop of Constantinople Together these sermons constitute a profound verse by verse exegesis of one of the most famous chapters of Scripture written by St Paul I Corinthians 13 In this short chapter St Paul describes the nature of Agape the selfless other centered love of the Christian for his neighbor It is easy to read and gives every appearance of being self explanatory It is so well known in the Church that it is easy to take it for granted and gloss over it to look for challenging bits of Scripture It might even be tempting to think that we have mastered it and that St Paul is describing our love for others Through his patient exegesis St John carefully unpacks each phrase forcing the reader to slow down and examine the meaning of the text thoroughly In so doing I discovered how impossible is the task of loving as Paul describes it and was reminded how desperately in need of God’s grace I am even as I try to do something as simple as loving another human being I highly recommend “The Love Chapter”

    Chrysostom unpacks 1 Corinthians 13 verse by verse in a deep discussion of a passage we often think we know better than we do He loses me a little in his very last chapter his theology on men and women and family seems a product of his time and place but not enough to put me off the entire work
