In the early 1990s, AGAIN Magazine, the quarterly publication of the Antiochian Evangelical Orthodox Mission, did a special issue on the growing trend of American Protestant clergy becoming Orthodox. Coming Home, edited by Fr Peter Guillquist (himself a convert), is a collection of some of these testimonials.

The collection is a mixed bag, of course. Some essays, like that of Thomas Renfree offer theological arguments, but most, such as Frank Milanese's essay, are just personal testimonials light

It can be a little repetitive reading 18 stories of conversions, but they are certainly good and worth reading. The book has some fantastic quotes from people who often spent their whole lives searching before finding home.

Expands the main story of "Becoming Orthodox" to encompass many other means by which people chose the orthodox church.
