Book Giveaway

Becoming Orthodox: A Journey to the Ancient Christian Faith by Peter Gillquist, revised edition published by Conciliar Press 1992. Soft-cover, 187 pages.

This was one of the first books I read upon my introduction to the Orthodox Church; it’s a great place to start, especially for those like me who have a Protestant mind-set. I could easily relate to Fr. Gillquist’s journey from his time with Campus Crusade for Christ through his many questions and stumbling blocks in searching for the church of the apostles.

On this quest with his fellow christian friends to discover the New Testament Church, he discovers Orthodoxy and works through issues such as Tradition, the nature of worship, venerating the Virgin Mary, and general history of the church.

This book is an easy read and would be suitable for anyone curious about Orthodoxy or on the journey to the ancient faith.

Just leave a comment here or email me @ heartjoys2002 (at) yahoo (dot) com if you’d like to be entered in the drawing set for Monday, May 3. (Limited to US participants)

I was given this years ago but being an Anglo-Catholic it didn't ring any bells with me so I passed it on to some evangelical friends. I'm sorry to say they loved the book but the reality of Orthodox worship was 'more' than they could cope with. Still at least they realise we are not crazy heretics :)

Church is the Church established by Jesus in year 33. It has bot Food for eternal life , Holy Eucharist that Protestantism may miss, and baptism .

So Margaret I believe it may be hard to put up being without food for eternal life. If you love Jesus, then you may need to come to his Church, Orthodox Church.
