Предговор

“Царството небесно прилича още на търговец, който търси хубави бисери, и като намери един скъпоценен бисер, отиде та продаде всичко, що имаше, и го купи”. (Мат. 13:45-46)

Защо протестантските пастори стават православни

Идеята за тази книга се роди на едно от събранията на редакторите на сп. ‘ОТНОВО’- тримесечното издание на Антиохийската Евангелска Православна Мисия. Главният редактор о.Уелдън Хардънбрук, зам. редакторът дякон Рей Зел, и аз нахвърляхме идеи за следващи броеве. Докато разговаряхме, разбрахме, че всички ние бяхме получили многобройни писма и телефонни обаждания от протестантски пастири, желаещи да научат нещо повече за Православието.

Дали това е растяща тенденция, питахме се ние, и ако да, какво се крие зад нея?

Специалният брой

Решихме да планираме специален брой на “ОТНОВО”, за който да поканим представителна група протестантски пастори, наскоро станали православни, да ни разкажат защо са дошли и да отговорят на въпроса Continue reading “Питър Гилкуист, Санта Барбара, Калифорния, САЩ: Завръщане у дома – Защо протестантските пастори стават православни? ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Bulgarian”

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

By the summer of 1966, our bubble was starting to burst. As staff members of Campus Crusade for Christ (headquartered at Arrowhead Springs in California) and men in key roles of leadership, we were intent on bringing America’s college students to faith in Christ. And we were further committed to Christ’s Great Commission: bringing the Gospel to the whole world. But that summer, we realized we would have to change our strategy. For we had become convinced from the Scriptures that the Church was the means to fulfilling that Great Commission.

The question was, of course, what is the Church?

By 1968, our National Field Coordinator — Jon Braun, Canadian Director — Ken Berven, African Director — Gordon Walker, Asian Director — Ray Nethery, Regional Directors — Richard Ballew and Peter Gillquist — and a host of others — resigned from Campus Crusade to pursue evangelism through the Church.

We did not want to build and maintain another new organization, at least not right away. Most of us struck out on our own, building house-churches in different parts of the country fashioned after what we saw as the New Testament model. We kept in touch with each other and exchanged ideas and encouragement from our successes and failures. Many of us had taken outside jobs to support ourselves and our families.

By 1973 all of us were expressing a desire to labor more closely together again. Working on our own was frustrating, and we sensed a need for mutual support and accountability. Consequently we decided to meet together in Dallas, Texas in July, 1973. Out of that meeting of about 70 people came a Continue reading “Arrowhead Springs To Antioch – Odyssey To Orthodoxy ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Fr. Peter Gillquist & Fr. Gordon Thomas Walker, USA”
