The story of a network of independent Evangelical Protestant congregations in the U.S. who in the 1970's discovered ancient Orthodox writings and were drawn into communion with the modern day Orthodox Church. A compelling story of a significant theological and spiritual journey. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
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.
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!
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.
