Review: Coming Home

Updated: Jul 9, 2019

Coming Home: Why Protestant Clergy Are Becoming Orthodox, edited by Peter E. Gillquist.

This is one of my favourite books I have reviewed for this series so far. It consists of 18 conversion stories from Protestant ministers of a whole spectrum of denominations, from Plymouth Brethren to high-church Anglican. I also heard about the Evangelical Orthodox Church from within it, which was a very inspiring story, somewhat similar to my own. There was also a man who came out of the Restoration Movement/Church of Christ, of which I was part for many years, which I also found helpful. All in all, it would make an inspiring read, especially for anyone who was rescued out of Protestantism, although I'm not sure how helpful it would be as an actual evangelistic tool.
