Beschreibung:

The first half of the book features Viktor Gorgachuk. Born in the USSR, his Orthodox parents keep his birth a secret by bribing the midwife. When Viktor is four, he is left at a remote monastery for eight years. Here he is educated and then released to his parents at twelve years of age. About this time, the midwife reveals the secret birth to the KGB, who begin a search for Viktor. The parents secretly leave Viktor with a family of Pentecostals and flee to Vladivostok where they are discovered by the KGB. Refusing to divulge Viktors location, they are killed. Five years later, Viktor flees the USSR and immigrates to the United States. Viktors escape from the KGB after the murder of his parents, and his adventures leading up to his immigration to America, is a riveting story. The second half follows Viktor in America. Here he becomes a leading pastor within Evangelicalism, which is seriously divided theologically. At one end of the divide are Pentecostals who believe supernatural spiritual gifts are active today and speaking in tongues is required evidence of Spirit baptism. At the other end are Cessationists who believe supernatural gifts of the Spirit ceased after the New Testament was completed. Pentecostal Pastor Viktor Gorgachuk becomes close friends with Cessationist Pastor Bill Ballard. They deplore the division within Evangelicalism. Both are committed to scripture as the ultimate authority for faith and practice. They agree to study each others doctrine to determine what scripture says. Each agrees to follow scripture if the result of his search demands it. The interaction between two sincere preachers searching for truth is compelling. Its a story that thousands of evangelicals and others searching for spiritual reality can relate to. Join the Truth Seekers if you dare.
