Homilies on Second Timothy by St. John Chrysostom (c. 349 - c. 407). Translated by Philip Schaff (1819 - 1893)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/2-timothy-by-st-john-chrysostom/
St. John Chrysostom (the golden-mouthed), the most famous preacher of his age turned his attention to 2 Timothy, giving a total of 10 sermons on this letter by Paul to his beloved Timothy whom he had appointed as an arch-bishop. This epistle is one of three that are called "pastoral" because they are concerned with the conduct of church leaders. It is considered to be one of the last letters he wrote before his death in Rome. (ancientchristian)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/homiliessjohnch02tweegoog/page/n190/mode/2up
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

OK, you're read to go. I'm putting this into the catalog as "St. John Chrysostom on Second Timothy" to follow the pattern title Linette used for Titus (since that one is already in the catalog). I've also changed the title of your reading for 1 Timothy to follow the same pattern.

If you start any more projects from Chrysostom's sermons, could you please put them into the new project generator using the same format? It's nice if the projects all look similar in the results of a catalog search, and if you are working with different MCs, we may not catch to align the titles until after they are cataloged, when it would be more work to change.

Thanks.
MaryAnn

Sure I can use that title format, no problem.

Thanks for setting this up.

MaryAnn,

It seems like this has been hanging around for a long time. Is there anything that can be done to attract a DPL?

Yes, we can change the name - which you have done. The ~ indicates that the project doesn't have a DPL, but adding that the files are ready is also a good idea.

You can also post an advert on the listeners wanted forum. Details are here: viewtopic.php?p=318668#p318668 Be sure to mark it "C" for complete, so folks know that the only thing left is the PLing.

OK will do. Btw, is it possible for me to DPL my own recording? ... posting my comments here and making changes.

Great.

We don't have people PL their own work, unless it happens to be in a language that no one else speaks. Bit of patience. Everything gets PL'd, some just take a bit of time.

I can give the PL job a try (unless it is in anything other than modern English) if you don't mind a complete newbie. I could start with the first section and, if it goes well, can do the rest of it for you. I'm a retired librarian so have the time to devote.

That would be great M.

AC has requested standard PLing. There are some guidelines here: viewtopic.php?p=318667#p318667. For standard PLing, you don't need to follow along with the text unless you want to. If I boil down the guidelines, for me it comes out to listening for things that make me go "huh?". Note the time and describe what you heard ...

Go ahead and give section 1 a listen, and then post in the thread. If you want to continue, I'll give you access to the Magic Window so you can update the status on the sections as you listen to them.

I finished the PL for Homily 1. I noticed a couple of things that should be fixed.

1.At 11:28, the paragraph for verse 7, first sentence. It sounds like the word used was exertation(?). instead of "we should shrink from exertion".
2. At 20:36, it says "God wills this and does not retract". whereas the audio uses the term "detract".

Other than those two items, it sounded fine.

Just for information, I felt several of the pauses throughout were a fraction of a second too long but were not extremely long.

I'll do the rest of the PLing for you if you would like.
