Edith Humphrey , an Anglican laywoman and Professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, has announced that she is becoming Eastern Orthodox . Humphrey has been a leading voice for classical Anglicanism and one of her areas of expertise has included Eastern Orthodoxy.
Her conversion is another in a long line of recent academics leaving a community founded in the 16th century for an apostolic communion. Others include Jaroslav Pelikan (Lutheran to Orthodox), Peter Kreeft (Calvinist to Catholic), and Francis Beckwith (Catholic to Evangelical back to Catholic). In many ways, all these converts can trace their heritage to John Henry Newman, who is on track to be beautified by the Catholic Church soon .
God bless you, Dr. Humphrey, and Cardinal Newman, pray for us!
