Desertpastor discusses Thomas Oden’s “The Rebirth of Orthodoxy : Signs of New Life in Christianity” and Fr. Thomas Hopko’s “Orthodox and Wesleyan Spirituality” (St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press) and the the tendency highlighted by the works of young people embracing orthodoxy in their various traditions–or in some cases in others’. Being one of these “young fogies,” I recommend the discussion.
So… what do you think about the increasing interest in orthodoxy among many protestants and evangelicals? What does it mean? Where is it going? Does it encourage you? Excite you? Concern you?
