Letter to an Evangelical, by Father Michael B. Johnson. From the opening note: "Some years ago, I wrote a letter to the editor of an Orthodox publication, responding to a previous letter from an evangelical who had criticized the Orthodox Church for being 'unscriptural'. My letter too was published, and not long after I received a personal letter from an evangelical who criticized the Orthodox Church in detail—essentially, for 'following the traditions of men' instead of the Word of God. Below are some excerpts from my response."
