Subtitle: Exploring Belief Systems Through the Lens of the Ancient Christian Faith
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 who is curious what Orthodoxy is all about? Look no further. In Orthodoxy & 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.

Have you ever wondered why religious doctrine matters? Are religious beliefs really just the arguments of a bunch of academics that have little bearing on real life? This book not only answers those questions but also embarks on a broad survey (a sort of "encyclopedia-level view") of nearly every major (and many minor!) Christian and non-Christian religious group in the world and how their beliefs and practices compare and contrast with the Orthodox Christian Church.
It will appeal to both the experienced explorer of religion and also the beginner, to both the Orthodox Christian and those who are unfamiliar with Orthodoxy.
Fans of the Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy podcast from Ancient Faith Radio will find that this work is not just a transcript of the podcast but represents a significantly revised and expanded set of material.
The Rev. Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick is pastor of St. Paul Orthodox Church in Emmaus, Pennsylvania. He also lectures widely on Orthodox evangelism, history, ecology, comparative theology, and localism. He is a founding member and one of the associate directors of the Society for Orthodox Christian History in the Americas. Fr. Andrew hosts the Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy and Roads from Emmaus podcasts, as well as writing the Roads from Emmaus weblog. He lives in Emmaus with his wife Kh. Nicole and their children.
