Von Ein Kunde am 20. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Perhaps it is because when this book was written the author was still in his infancy in his journey to Orthodoxy, and so he can be excused his breathless enthusiasm for everything and everybody he encountered on the way. However, style is no substitute for substance. His constant busyness, traveling from one side of the country to another, taking endless meetings with simply wonderful people, left my head spinning and wondering when he had time for his Church. I found his self-congratulatory tone offputting, and totally at odds with what a life in Christ requires of us: humility, sincerity, sacrifice. How many people he has brought to Christ or healings he has accomplished through prayer is information that does not belong in a book of this type, and would have been better left unmentioned.
It does have value in that it carefully lays out the means that Gillquist and his fellow seekers took to come to Orthodoxy: through Biblical research and study of the Church Fathers, references invaluable for all of us.
To sum up, this book would be ideal for the (evangelical) Protestant who is considering other faiths and is looking for an apologetic in his or her own lingo; for the rest of us, the book, for what it gives to the reader, requires too much struggle to get beyond the vernacular of Fr. Gillquist's past affiliations.

Or is it? As time marches on, more and more people discover the beauty of Orthodoxy, and the secret is getting out! Fr. Peter's book is part biography, part entry-level theology book, and describes the journey that he and 2000 others made from Protestantism to Orthodoxy. As one who followed in his footsteps many years later, I understand his excitement in discovering, at last, the pearl of great price. Others have walked down the same path, and in the end turned away (see, for example, Daniel Clendennin, whose books I have also reviewed).
For me, there wasn't quite enough of a description of Orthodox beliefs, though there are plenty of places where those can be found. All in all, though, this is an excellent book for anyone who are wondering if there is an answer to the problems of 20th century Christianity. The answer is a resounding yes from Fr. Peter, and I heartily concur!

While the enthusiasm expressed in this work is encouraging, as is the energy witnessed in its expression, it is nonetheless wanting in the extent of its content.
Written while the author and his colleagues were new to Orthodoxy, it expresses much more of the 'coming home' sentiment and excitement than it does a detailed description of Orthodox theology or the Church. It is the author's 'conversion experience,' and not so much a discussion of what he was converting to, that is the focus of the work.
Yet this book will still find a strong readership in those who are from a Protestant/Evangelical background and are considering Orthodoxy, or are simply intrigued and interested in it. From that perspective, 'Becoming Orthodox' offers insights that will strike close to home, and address many of the issues that are encountered when viewing Orthodoxy from such a background.

Fr. Peter Gillquist's "Becoming Orthodox" has many flaws if viewed as an introduction to Orthodoxy, but it works well to describe the journey of a former group of Campus Crusade for Christ regional directors to the Eastern Orthodox faith. Evangelical Protestantism is very differnt animal from Orthodoxy, and although Gillquist touches on a few of the issues that seperate the two, he does not go into enough depth to satisfy inquirers. For a similar book that delves deeper into the theological issues present between Evangelicals and Orthodox, I would reccomend "The Way: What Every Protestant Should Know about the Orthodox Church," by Fr. Clark Carlton. With the flaws in Gillquist's book, it still is valuable to read for the story of the two decade journey that transformed a group of 6-10 Campus Crusade leaders into over 2,000 Orthodox Christians.

Gillquist's book Becoming Orthodox is a story about his own pilgrimage to Orthodoxy. A former Campus Crusade for Christ leader, graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and Wheaton Graduate School,Gillquist describes the ups and downs of his spiritual journey and what ultimately led him and several of his friends in Campus Crusade to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Of significance is the way in which he clearly elucidates in a non-threatening manner faith/doctrinal issues with which Prostestants often find themselves at odds. His experience also shows that lack of racial ties within the Greek Orthodox Faith can be a strong deterant for the "outsider" wanting in.

Gillquist opens for the reader the often neglected "third door" and introduces us to the Orthodox Church. A fascinating look at how so many evangelicals found the ancient Church of the first christians. This book will be a breath of fresh air for evangelicals who have taken "sola scriptura" to the limit and wondered what's next, and will encourage those who have researched Church history and cannot, in good conscience, accept Papal ecclesiology. At a time when the searching christian is seemingly confronted with the usual Roman/Protestant choices, Gillquist presents us with another option.
