Evangelical To Orthodox: An Unusual Development.
A prominent US-based evangelical author and broadcaster known as 'The Bible Answer Man' has been formally received into the Eastern Orthodox Church.
The Christian Post (CP) revealed that Hank Hannegraaff, who is president and chairman of the Christian Research Institute, was 'chrismated' on Palm Sunday at Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Fellow Orthodox Christian Rod Dreher, the author of the New York Times best-selling book The Benedict Option, welcomed the development. 'What outstanding news,' he told CP. 'Many evangelicals seek the early church; well here it is, in Orthodoxy,' the author said.
