January 30, 2013 Length: 35:26
We are pleased to offer the following interview with Archimandrite Irenei (Steenberg) entitled "Orthodox Theology in America Today." Father Irenei is the pastor of the St. Tikhon Church (ROCOR) in San Francisco, an internationally recognized scholar of patristics, former head of the Dept. of Theology at the University of Leeds (UK), founder and director of the patristics site http://www.monachos.net, prolific author, and director of the Ss. Cyril and Athanasius Orthodox Institute.
"It wasn't until about a little over a year ago that I discovered the existence of the Orthodox Church. I went to Pascha last year and felt like one of the Russian spies, "I did not know whether I was in Heaven or on Earth, but I do know this: God is amongst these people." In the middle of Lent of this year, I came across a link to Ancient Faith Radio that one Orthodox Church had on their website, began listening to Fr. Thomas Hopko, among others, and have gotten hooked, if you will. AFR has allowed for me to look into Orthodoxy as I've investigated many different denominations of Christianity, and grow towards God in ways that actually HAVE been practiced since the days of the Early Church. Thank God and you all (you know who you are) for making this site possible."
