The Golden Cord takes readers on a journey through Saint John Chrysostom's teaching on the Christian family. Coupling his spiritual wisdom with insights from some of the greatest modern thinkers, The Golden Cord invites thoughtful parents and teachers to delve deeper into the treasury of their ancient Christian heritage. Faith, tradition, and contemporary thought do not always have to be at odds. The author explores how current and ancient sources can agree on the subject of how the Christian family can grow together in virtue and stand firm against the powerful antichristian forces that move through secular society.
This exploration focuses on three key elements of St. John's pedagogy for the family: spiritual exercise, imitation, and story-telling.
