- Fr. Adrian Ivan, Logos Parainetikos. Parenetical Principles Within Homilies to Matthew and In Other Writings of Saint John Chrysostom, 2015

‘The subject of the book is a nice commitment to the great preacher of the Eastern Church, with the occasion of the commemorative year 2015, in which the life and the work of Saint John Chrysostom were discussed directly. In this sense, father Adrian Ivan assumes from the beginning a great responsibility, reached with success. The over 380 pages prove the profound inclination on the parenetical style in accordance with ‘Homilies on Matthew’ and other writings signed by the great Antiochian hierarch. In other words, the book ‘Logos Parainetikos. Parenetical Principles Within Homilies to Matthew and In Other Writings of Saint John Chrysostom’ represents an essential contribution for the Orthodox homiletical field, discovering in a pertinent and argued way a traditional path and in the same time an undeniable specific of our Church.’ Archdeacon Ioniţă Apostolache
