"Orthodoxy & Heterodoxy" Podcast Series

Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy: "Discover how Orthodox Christianity and non-Orthodox doctrine differ and why it matters to your spiritual journey."

I previously posted my article, "Medicinal Dogma (in a 'spiritual, but not religious' culture)" about the significance of dogmatic theology for good health and healing.  As an introduction to the specific differences between the Orthodox Christian Faith and various non-Orthodox groups, I recommend listening to Fr. Andrew Damick's Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy podcast series on Ancient Faith Radio.  The series covers the following topics:

* Understanding the Terms
* The Essentials of Christian Doctrine
* Orthodox and Roman Catholic Differences
* The Classical Reformation
* The Radical Reformation
* Revivalism
* Non-Chrisitan Religions
* Non-Mainstream Christians

Handouts relevant to the presentations are available on the St. Paul Orthodox Church (Emmaus, PA) website. Before listening to the podcast series, read Fr. Andrew's "Reflections on Non-Ecumenical Podcasting" on his Roads from Emmaus blog.
