Patristic Social Teaching

I'm having my graduate students this semester read a new English translation of the homilies of St. Basil the Great. That translation was published in the very welcome Popular Patristics Series of St. Vladimir's Seminary Press.


St. Basil the Great on Social Justice, trans. C. Paul Schroeder (SVS Press, 2009), 111pp.

This book is reviewed in detail by the prolific pastoral theologian and Orthodox priest-writer William C. Mills (http://www.williamcmills.com/ ). The review is in the forthcoming issue of Logos, due in print by November.
