Product Description

By Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick

Are you an Orthodox Christian who wonders how to explain to your Baptist grandmother, your Buddhist neighbor, or the Jehovah’s Witness at your door how your faith differs from theirs? Or are you a member of another faith who is curious what Orthodoxy is all about? Look no further. In Orthodoxy & Heterodoxy, Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick covers the gamut of ancient heresies, modern Christian denominations, fringe groups, and major world religions, highlighting the main points of each faith. This book is an invaluable reference for anyone who wants to understand the faiths of those they come in contact with—as well as their own.

  1. Excellent and Interesting Read 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 15th 2016

    I bought this book because I liked the podcast, and thought it might have more information. It is virtually the same as the podcast, but with the added advantage that it has additional reference material in the back of the book. Also, you can see where the quotes are from. I think this is the first edition, which is why there are some mistakes in the doctrinal content of at least the section on the Jehovah's witnesses. This is corrected in the current podcast, and I hope in the second edition. I am blind and so unless available in audio or ebook as this first edition is I have no way of knowing if the errors in the book have been corrected. I hope the second edition will be made available in ebook, and replace this edition. I am overall pleased with my purchase however, and even though it is the first edition obviously, it is still an excellent reference and primer on the religions and denominations of Christianity as well as non-christian religions. If there are any questions about the errors that I refer to, the publisher or Fr. Damic may contact me at or
