Transformed in Christ
Christology and the Christian Life in John Chrysostom
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Chrysostom is usually studied as a homiletician of remarkable rhetorical technique. This careful and probing monograph by Naidu considers him as a contributor to Christian ethics--one interested in the transformation of a human person from being a wolf to becoming a dove through coming into the ark of the church, an ark much superior to that of Noah, into which one entered as a wolf and left as a wolf."
Princeton Theological Seminary
"Naidu does a marvelous job of showing how Chrysostom's exegesis is driven by his concern for shaping concrete dispositions and practices of Christian piety. While giving due attention to the historical and dogmatic questions regarding the character of Chrysostom's Christology, Naidu succeeds in orienting the reader to the specifically pastoral concerns that defined this Father's approach to the biblical texts."
Candler School of Theology
"Naidu's engaging and lucidly written study on the Christology of St. Chrysostom is an important contribution and corrective to the literature on the 'Golden Mouthed' orator . . . The strength of Naidu's work lies in his organic treatment of Chrysostom's Christology as set within the contours of his overall thought, giving particular consideration to the sacramental and praxeological dimensions that undergird his conception of the Savior's person and work."
