Where Christ is Lord. Where holiness, human responsibility, and the sovereignty of God are preached. Where fellowship is more than a covered-dish supper in the church basement. And where fads and fashions take a backseat to apostolic worship and doctrine.This is a book, for Orthodox Christians, looking for ways to bring new life to their own Churches. It's also a book for those completely dissatisfied--those on their own search. And it's a book for Orthodox Christians, looking for renewal.Read Less

This is the firth or sixth copy I've bought -- I keep giving them away. It's a fine book and explains so clearly why Father Peter and his associates decided to become members and priests of the Orthodox Church, after being Protestant Evangelicals for many years.

The book is written in a nice lively language, it gives no unnecessary details and is easy to read (I've read most of it in one night). It is a historical scetch of how these people (the Evangelical Orthodox Church, organized by Gillquist and others) came to historical Orthodoxy and of some of their first contacts with the hierarchy of the historical Church (first Constantinople, then Antioch). It was interesting to me because it gives insights into how the Protestant life as well as the life of the Constantinople and Antioch Patriarchates of the Eastern Orthodox Church may look from the eyes of USA former Protestants. A lot of people who buy this book expect a theological discussion, but the book mentions key theological issues only in passing, - apparently it wasn't the goal of the book to give a detailed account of what historical sources ECA leaders uncovered.
