John Chrysostom on Biblical Literacy – I wonder what he would say to the church today? September 13, 2010

“If you ask [Christians] who is Amos or Obadiah, how many apostles there were or prophets, they stand mute; but if you ask them about the horses or drivers, they answer with more solemnity than sophists or rhetors”

I wonder what he would say to the church today?
