What is Ancient Faith Today?
Ancient Faith Today is what Ancient Faith Radio and Orthodox Internet radio have been missing -- a live inter-active conversation program. Now that void has been filled! Ancient Faith Today streams live, with call-ins from around the world, twice a month on Sunday nights at 5:00pm Pacific/7:00pm Central/8:00pm Eastern on Ancient Faith Radio Talk.
Topics cover all of life through the lens of Scripture and the teaching and canonical tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. Ancient Faith Today’s host Kevin Allen talks with knowledgeable guests about social issues, global events, politics as they affect matters of faith (from a non-partisan perspective), war and peace, aging, death and life, church affairs, inter-faith affairs, current events, journeys to faith and Orthodoxy, theology and apologetics, cults, atheism, the paranormal, the New Age movement and Eastern religion. More than just “talk radio”, Ancient Faith Today is Orthodox Christianity’s platform for illumining and informative conversation about subjects that matter, with people who care.
There is no other live (streaming) call-in show with an Orthodox Christian perspective Internet radio!
Kevin Allen was the host of Ancient Faith Radio’s popular award-winning program “The Illumined Heart.” Kevin draws upon his unique faith background to host this fascinating, engaging and spiritually constructive program with guests you should know!
March 9: Orthodox Christianity and Buddhism
Buddhists in the US are double the number of Orthodox Christians, and most American Buddhists are Western, not raised in Buddhist traditions. Kevin and his guests Fr. Brendan Pelphrey (GOA), an ex-missionary in Asia who has had dialogue with the Dalai Lama, and R. Todd Godwin, ex-Buddhist and Orthodox Christian, will discuss the attractions of Buddhism, as well as its key teachings and practices, in comparison with and in contrast to those of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
March 23: Pentecostalism and Eastern Orthodox Christianity
Pentecostalism, as well as its Evangelical Charismatic offshoot, is one of the fastest-growing Christian movements in the US and many parts of the world. Its influence has spread beyond Protestantism and has even impacted the Roman Catholic Church. Latest estimates rank Pentecostalism's adherents as high as 280 million, as large as the adherents of the global Eastern Orthodox Church. On March 23rd, host Kevin Allen's guest is ex-Pentecostal Christian pastor, media consultant, and now Greek Orthodox Christian priest and speaker, Fr. Barnabas Powell. They will talk about the early 20th century origins of Pentecostalism, its emergence as a popular Christian movement, its key beliefs, and why Fr. Barnabas left traditional Pentecostalism to became an Eastern Orthodox Christian.
