Everywhere Present: Christianity in a One-Storey Universe

  • Author: Stephen Freeman
  • Publisher: Ancient Faith Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 110

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Have you ever referred to God as “the man upstairs”? Many Christians living in secular society have unwittingly relegated God and all things spiritual to the “second storey” of the universe: a realm we cannot reach except through death. Popular blogger and podcaster Father Stephen Freeman argues that this effectively banishes God from our everyday lives.

In Everywhere Present, Freeman makes a compelling case for becoming aware of God’s living and active presence in every moment of our lives. Learning to practice your Christian faith in a one-storey universe will change your life—and make possible the living, intimate relationship with God you’ve always dreamed of.

Stephen Freeman is an Orthodox priest who serves as the rector of St. Anne Orthodox Church in Tennessee. He has published a number of articles, gives a regular podcast on Ancient Faith Radio, and writes and maintains the blog, Glory2GodForAllThings.com.

Popes and Patriarchs: An Orthodox Perspective on Roman Catholic Claims

  • Author: Michael Whelton
  • Publisher: Ancient Faith Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 180

Popes and Patriarchs presents the Orthodox position on the role of the papacy in an intelligent, easy-to-understand style that will appeal to laypeople, priests, seminary students, and discussion groups. For any dialogue between the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches to be fruitful, we must first understand our differences. Popes and Patriarchs covers some of the distinctions in theology and worldview that separate the churches of the East from those of the West, focusing primarily on the claims of papal supremacy.

Michael Whelton, a convert from Catholicism to Orthodoxy, discusses some of the theological and historical issues that led him to explore the teachings of the Orthodox Church, including the doctrine of original sin, the influence of medieval scholastic thought on the Western Church, and the modern trend toward evolutionary Christianity. He also examines in depth the true attitude of the early Eastern saints of the Church toward the papacy, an attitude radically different from that frequently attributed to them by Roman Catholic apologists. A final chapter is devoted to typical questions Roman Catholics raise about the Orthodox Church, including a comprehensive discussion of divorce and remarriage.

Michael Whelton is a British-born Orthodox writer who lives in southwest British Columbia. He is the author of Two Paths: Papal Monarchy-Collegial Tradition, The Pearl: A Handbook for Orthodox Converts, and False Gods: Counterfeit Spirituality in an Age of Anxiety.
