Salve!  Grin

What are you're thoughts on the efforts of D.H. Williams and other Evangelicals seeking greater links to the Ancient Church?

Wouldn't our response be obvious??

The Fullness of Christ is only available in the Orthodox Church.

Although I accept the fact that many evangelicals are opening their eyes to the need to return to roots of the Historical Church, they must be made aware that that historical church is here still.

I wasn't really looking for a polemical response but something more along the lines of that any renewal in the seminaries with regards to Tradition and Patristic would be a turn to a more historically balanced exegesis that would perhaps bring greater dialogue with the East and West.

I guess that is something that they will have to discover for themselves.
