Ancient Faith and American-Born Churches offers a unique approach to the exploration of the Christian tradition and faith heritage of Christian communities in the United States. In this set of dialogues, wildly unlikely combinations of church traditions are paired off with each other: Seventh-day Adventists and Episcopalians discuss Jesus’s second coming; Eastern Orthodox and Holiness church leaders discuss Christian worship; Churches of Christ and Roman Catholic theologians discuss the meaning of a truly “apostolic” church. This exciting series of interchanges opens up unexpected points of convergence between widely separated Christian traditions. Ancient Faith and American-Born Churches also provides a rich source of knowledge about the depths and the gifts of the faith and beliefs churches profess.
