October 02, 2009 Length: 32:17
In this two-part interview, ex-Baptist seminary graduate and missionary to Bosnia, now Orthodox priest, Fr James Early, recounts with Illumined Heart host Kevin Allen the circumstances under which he had to face and eventually reject core Baptist-Evangelical tenets and come to accept the faith handed down once and for all to the Saints. His book is called From Baptist to Byzantium.
"As I sit gazing out over the frigid tundra of the Arctic here on the Alaskan coast, so close to Siberia across the Bering Straits, I am listening to the most beautiful Christian music available—that of Ancient Faith Radio. Thank you for so encouraging me in this bleak, isolated, and bitterly cold Arctic region on the coast of Alaska. You are truly inspirational! Often I listen through the night until morning. What comfort I receive! Continue in your beautiful liturgical music programs!"
