A Journey of Fear and Joy is the story of one man's journey to the church of the New Testament. Having been brought up in the Church of Christ (a part of theCampbell-Stone Restoration Movement), he believed his church was the originalfirst-century church restored. But while investigating the history of the Lord's church, he discovered a number of inconsistencies in the beliefs and practices of the present-day "restored" church with the church of the first century. This book presents a summary of his findings and the startling conclusions he reached in his rediscovery of the church we read about in the New Testament. It is the tale of a journey that brought the author both much fear and great joy. Readers may be surprised at his conclusions, but no more surprised than he when he learned that the original church had been with us all along, the faith having been maintained in historical continuity throughout the centuries by the Eastern Orthodox Church.
