    1 thought on “Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy: Finding the Way to Christ in a Complicated Religious Landscape”

    1. I first heard what became this book as a series of podcasts on Ancient Faith Radio. This book, while crossing much the same ground, isn't simply a transcription, but a re-imagining of the subject in book form. It seems to me the chapter on Roman Catholicism in particular has been much expanded, as have the sections on history of the Reformation and Protestantism in general. What is especially good about this book is that it is not merely critical, but also shows what the various different hetero [...]

    2. I really liked it up to chapter 6, and then the structure or tone of the book shifted. Up until this point, Damick's treatment on what distinguishes Orthodoxy from Roman Catholicism and mainstream Protestantism was well written, and in-depth. I really didn't detect any snark, other than the provocative sub-heading under the Papacy, "A Different God?". (But we are often hardest on those to whom we are closest.) If anything, I felt Damick was very respectful in presenting various faiths and Christ [...]

    3. Having grown up Protestant, attended many of the churches described in this book, explored new paganism and finally becoming orthodox almost 20 years ago, this book is a respectful comparison of many of these groups. Highly recommended for any orthodox wanting to understand other religious groups or for those spiritual seekers interested in orthodoxy. Highly recommended.

    4. In the plural multicultural world in which we live we encounter all kinds of religious ideas and worldviews. We very often encounter them as soundbites on broadcast media or tweets on social media, without any context, and so have no way to evaluate them in relation to what we already know. Orthodox Christians experience this, and, especially for those living outside traditionally Orthodox countries, what they hear from the world around the is likely to be different in many ways from Orthodoxy.T [...]

    5. Very good catalog of the differences (and similarities, but mostly differences) in doctrine and practice between the Orthodox Faith and other religions. Primarily focuses on heterodox Christian communions, but at least touches briefly on all major religions. I imagine it will be a text I use fairly frequently as a resource. It also features helpful appendices for quick reference, especially the list of major heresies. Fr. Andrew's writing is clear and to the point. While he pulls no punches in r [...]

    6. This book tells the story of how Christians have splintered from Orthodoxy over the years. It moves through the various denominations, grouping them and clarifying the theology that separates each of them.It's a fascinating read straight through (though to the Orthodox reader, it brings some sadness as we watch exactly how the Enemy has confused so many people over these years), and then does double-duty, remaining on your shelf as a valuable resource -- a reference book, listing denominations a [...]

    7. I believe that every Orthodox Christian should read this book. Not only are differences explained between Orthodoxy and other faiths, but the similarities are pointed out. The reader also understands how various heterodox beliefs logically came about due to the thinking of the age or the founders. Many are reactions to the movement that preceded it.I can't say enough good about this book.

    8. Really great book. I would go so far as to say a must read for the Orthodox laity. I especially like the pastoral guidance near the end of the book and in the epilogue!

    9. I think Father Damick's reach exceeded his grasp a little bit on a few religious traditions. But it was a very ambitious undertaking and a remarkably good job overall.

    10. An extremely thought provoking and eye-opening book. I would recommend this to not only fellow Orthodox Christians, but to anyone with questions concerning the faith.

    11. This is only technically a reread. I read the first edition of Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy in 2016, but the revised and expanded edition lives up to its name.There's a lot of new content here. And the old content that remained has been altered in two ways: 1.) Tone --Where before it was largely aimed at Orthodox Christians looking to understand other traditions, it is now more broadly focused, and thus more accessible to the average reader. I think there's a good takeaway here for most readers, whe [...]

    12. Your time will not be wastedA wonderful look at many religions through the lens of Orthodox Christianity. If your at all interested, you will not be disappointed

    13. 4.5 StarsGreat book.My only complaint is the chapter on Atheism/Agnosticism. I feel Damick could have spent more time than four pages, but I guess he hadn’t planned to write it when studying.

    14. A must read book for all Orthodox and Non-Orthodox, plus all walks of life. Gives a better understanding with all different religions and beliefs and how it exist and founded.

    15. This review is written with reference to the second edition (blue cover).WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOWThe Second Edition of Orthodoxy & Heterodoxy (O&H 2.0) is not the same thing as the first edition. When I started reading it I found that, even though I read the First Edition and listened to both podcasts (O&H 1.0 & 2.0) prior to picking up the Second Edition of the book, it still held my interest and attention. While a lot of topics covered in the book are the same (such as Roman Catho [...]

    16. Review of the 1st Edition"Doctrine Matters."When a book claims to be from a certain perspective, it's generally worth the time to take the author seriously. This isn't a comparative religions text, as such, but it is a fairly thorough overview of the variety of Christian denominations (particularly in the USA), how they came to be, and--most importantly--why they fall short of what Eastern Orthodoxy recognizes as truth.With the exception of the chapter on Roman Catholicism (which, by nature, is [...]

    17. This was a very concise book exploring not only the differences between Orthodox Christian doctrine and practices and those of other faiths, but also the common ground. I most enjoyed the first part of the book, dealing with Roman Catholicism and the Protestant denominations that resulted from the magisterial and radical reformations. These areas of the books were the most thoroughly researched, with many Orthodox and non-Orthodox sources. I was a little disappointed in the last few chapters con [...]

    18. not a bad book at all. it's pretty comprehensive in bringing some light to different Christian communities and their differences with Orthodoxy. i think my biggest hangup is that i can hear Fr Andrew's voice (this book originated as a podcast series) and he has this smug, arrogant air about him which really grates on my nerves. still, recommended for Orthodox who want to know more about other faiths.

    19. I read the first edition of this book, and learned quite a bit of things I didn't know. This edition I relearned many things as well as more things. I also believe the tone of this book was not nearly as confrontational as the first edition. It reinforced to me that I am following the correct path in my Christian life, which is what I believe was one of the intents of this book.

    20. Excellent book. Clears up all confusion regarding the multitude of sects, divisions, and offshoots in Christianity, and soundly proves Cardinal Newman's statement, "To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant." Highly recommended.

    21. Very helpful - think of it as a comparison between Orthodoxy and all other religions/beliefs, both Christian branches and non-Christian.

    22. A high level overview of various religious systems. At times it feels a bit simplistic, but that has to do with length. Doing a comparative religions study in such a short book is challenging.
