In an effort to attain a more inspiring richness of theology and worship, a popular evangelical radio personality known as "The Bible Answer Man" and president and chairman of the Christian Research Institute, has converted to the Eastern Orthodox religion, the Christian Post website reports today (April 12, 2017).
Hank Hannegraaf was chrismated on Palm Sunday at Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
"What astounding news," said Rod Dreher, an Orthodox Christian and author of the New York Times best-selling book titled "The Benedict Option."
Dreher told the Christian Post that 11 years ago he came to the "foreign country called Orthodoxy" and now cannot imagine being anywhere else. He added: "The richness of Orthodox theology and worship is incomparable... sedimenting life for Christ into my bones."
