Synopsis
It is reported that on average Americans change their religious affiliation at least once during their lives. Today, a number of evangelical Christians are converting to Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Anglicanism. As such, there is great need for a resource that cogently presents an evangelical response to these competing faith traditions. Evangelical Christians, however, need not only theological answers, but a deeper understanding of the obvious attraction of these varying religious expressions. JoThis ebook download of Journeys of Faith examines the theological migrations among Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans, and Evangelicals, each of which is viewed from various angles. Three prominent evangelical converts to Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism describe their new faith traditions and their spiritual journeys into them. In response, chapters by recognized evangelical scholars offer civil critiques. The book also contains a chapter by a convert to Evangelicalism, followed by an appraisal of the evangelical faith by a Catholic scholar. Each contributor arguing for their new faith tradition will be allowed a brief rejoinder to those writing on the opposing side. There are basically two types of chapters in this book: First, chapters that explain and advocate theological migration from one expression of Christianity to another (e.g., an Evangelical who has converted to Catholicism and makes a case for others to do the same). These chapters focus on such issues as Why did you leave your prior theological tradition? and What is it about your new tradition that makes you feel it better represents Scripture and church history. Second, there are response chapters arguing for the greater theological fidelity of a certain expression of Christianity in light of persons leaving those traditions (e.g., Evangelicals arguing that conversions to Greek Orthodoxy or Catholicism are not moves to greater faithfulness). These chapters will provide a critique of the differing Christian traditions under discussion and address such issues as Why have you remained within your current Christian tradition? and Why beneficial lessons can be learned from the tradition you are critiquing? In all, this book will provide readers with first-hand accounts of why certain individuals have changed their religious affiliation or have remain true to the one they have always known. Pastors, counselors and general readers will gain a wealth of insight into current faith migration with the Church today.
