Women and Men in the Early Church: The Vision of St John Chrysostom /w Dr. David Ford

Dr. David Ford is a Ph.D. and professor at St Tikhon’s Theological Seminary in Church History.
He is the author of six books, and his work “”Women and Men in the Early Church: The Vision of St John Chrysostom”” was highly influential on my spiritual walk and journey into the Orthodox faith.
In this interview, we discuss the teachings of St John Chrysostom, but also dive into Dr. David’s understanding and our implementation of these teachings in modern life, him as an elder and far more experienced man, and myself as one doing what I can to learn how to align my own life and marriage.
