by Joseph David Huneycutt
Converts to the Orthodox Church are sometimes stunned by the ethnic ghetto they seem to have landed in. Cradle Orthodox are no less amazed by these zealous, sometimes apparently nutty converts. And priests often seem clueless as to how to deal with the mixed blessing of newcomers. How on earth can we all understand each other? More importantly, what can we learn from each other?
Fr Joseph David Huneycutt helps readers - whether cradle, convert, "revert," or "retread" - navigate and explore:
- Convert Frustration
- Who's Converting to Orthodoxy and Why
- Convert Baggage and Struggles
- Convert Strengths
- Convert Burnout
- Culture Wars
Praise for One Flew Over the Onion Dome: American Orthodox Converts, Reverts, & Retreads:
The Convert experience is full of surprises, not only for the pilgrims involved but for those who attempt to pastor and teach them. One Flew Over the Onion Dome tackles these challenges with up-front honesty, good humor, and steadfast faith.
-Frederica Mathewes-Green, Author of Facing East and Welcome to the Orthodox Church
