Becoming Orthodox: A Journey to the Ancient Christian Faith


Ancient Faith Publishing 2009

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Peter Gillquist tells the story of a handful of courageous men and their congregations who risked stable occupations, security, and the approval of lifelong friends to pursue a call to the Orthodox Church.

This text is also the story of every believer who is searching for the Church—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 fashion take a back seat to apostolic worship and doctrine. This revised edition includes a new epilogue, “Coming up on Twenty-Five Years” since the entry of the Evangelical Orthodox into the Holy Orthodox Church.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
