5.0 out of 5 stars Ex-Crusaders' Compelling Search for 1st Century Church, 23 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Becoming Orthodox (Paperback)
What a book! Hardly the expected 20th century answer for nearly two-thousand-year-old questions: how do we worship as the Body of Christ, what do we believe? The author and his colleagues' search ended at Orthodox doors and this book chronicles carefully the process there and the process after. The reader is yanked in immediately and finds clear, careful, exciting recounting. I'm not Orthodox by the way; I ordered this because my daughter-in-law is.

5.0 out of 5 stars One mans personal pilgrimage to a deeper spiritual life., 6 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Becoming Orthodox (Paperback)
Peter Gilquist reveals in this book a deep hungering for spiritual truth, and a deeper Christian experience. The book is a journal of his pilgrimage from evangelical Protestantism, to evangelical Orthodoxy. Evangelical Orthodoxy is something I considered impossible until I read this book. This book is not a polemical argument against Protestantism, but rather a wonderful travel log of his spiritual journey .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!, 19 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Becoming Orthodox (Paperback)
Nothing but kudos and congratulations on a wonderful book, perfectly geared for Americans wishing to know more about the Orthodox Church. Christianity in the United States tends towards appreciating 'conversion stories' (actually, it's a phenomon in the Orthodox Church as well, but of a different ethos), and if you are an American looking into the Orthodox Church, this book will give you a small taste of what to expect, and will inspire you to go forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars faith, 2 Jan 2005
This review is from: Becoming Orthodox (Paperback)
I was once a non practicing Anglican then after being made Romanian Orthodox My world has changed with the love of god and by repeating the Jesus prayer has made my life more pure. This book helps you understand Orthodoxy and a very good book to read is Father Arseny all about his life this will help you to get the feel of being Christian

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended reading, deserves the high rating., 9 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Becoming Orthodox (Paperback)
On one hand the book shows and documents the rationale of why the Orthodox Church is the Church of the Apostles, the true Church of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Faithfull to its roots. On the other hand, it presents the openess of the Antiochian Orthodox to those looking back for the old original true Catholic Orthodox Apostolic Church. The high rating is well deserved for this book. Make this book the top choice in your shopping list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Becoming Othodox, 18 July 2013
By 
Christine A. Eldridge (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating story of a group of American evangelicals search for the New Testament church which eventually led them to the Orthodox church

A bit dated though as transition happened 15 or so years ago
