Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy: Exploring Belief Systems through the Lens of the Ancient Christian Faith


Ancient Faith Publishing 2011

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Are you an Orthodox Christian who wonders how to explain to your Baptist grandmother, your Buddhist neighbor, or the Jehovah’s Witness at your door how your faith differs from theirs? Or are you a member of another faith, curious what Orthodoxy is all about? In Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy, Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick covers the gamut of ancient heresies, modern Christian denominations, fringe groups, and major world religions, highlighting the main points of each faith. This book is an invaluable reference for anyone who wants to understand the faiths of those they come in contact with—as well as their own.

With the Logos edition of this resource, these powerful reference tools automatically integrate with your Logos library, allowing you to cross-reference them and study Orthodoxy like never before. Pull these accessible texts up side-by-side with other theological experts in your library to see what other denominations have to say. Important terms, figures, and dates link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, the timeline, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Logos mobile apps let you bring the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place so you get the most out of your study.
