Church History, Order and Beauty

Church History, Order and Beauty


Do all Christians believe in the same God?  Fr. Chris Metropulos speaks with Fr. John W. Morris, Ph.D., pastor of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, Vicksburg, Mississippi concerning his book, The Historic Church: An Orthodox View of Christian History. Listen as they discuss Biblical interpretation and theological lies that veil a Christian unity that could never exist.

But first, Dr. Theodore Bogdanos, a lifelong musician of the church, composer, chanter, and retired professor of English and World Literature talks with Fr. Chris. He recently participated in the production of a new TYPICON, the Ritual Order of the Services of the Great Church of Christ and we’ve asked him to speak with us about this exciting publication.  To purchase the TYPICON, write to: Denver Church Music Federation, PO Box 2148, Littleton, CO 80161.
