160: Catechizing New Age and Eastern Religion Seekers
January 01, 2011 Length: 41:14
In this episode, the microphone is turned as AFR General Manager and founder John Maddex interviews host Kevin Allen on the catechism module he developed (with his priest's blessing) specifically for inquirers coming from New Age and Eastern spiritual backgrounds. Is the entrance of New Age and Eastern seekers perhaps a trend the Church needs to prepare for? Are the issues, concerns and paradigms of these seekers the same as those inquiring from Evangelical backgrounds? Must the catechist know something about New Age and Eastern religions in order to catechize effectively? These are some of the question that will be addressed in this program.

"I have been investigating Orthodox Christianity for about one year. AFR has been an invaluable source of Orthodox teaching and information that I listen to as often as I can. It has brought me close to becoming an Orthodox Christian. God bless you and the work you do!"
