Journeys of Faith: Evangelicalism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism
edited by Robert L. Plummer
(256 pages, $18.99, paperback)
reviewed by Louis Markos
I spent most of the 1980s as a college student and as an active member of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Though IVCF was, and is, a non-denominational, para-church organization whose members hail from all branches of the "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church," it was almost a given that those students who were most committed to Christ, most serious about sharing their faith, and most earnest about studying the Scriptures were either Evangelical Protestants or (like myself) in the process of becoming one. Again and again, I met students who had grown up as nominal Catholics or Orthodox or liturgical ("high-church") Protestants, but who now felt convicted and called by the Spirit to convert to Evangelicalism.
