Biography

Ralph H. Sidway

Ralph H. (Zosimas) Sidway is an Orthodox Christian researcher, writer and speaker specializing in the intersection of Orthodoxy and Islam. Shocked into awareness of Islam (like many of us) by the attacks of 9/11/01, Ralph began his study of Islam in earnest in 2005 after a friend left the parish to become a Muslim. Ralph began writing articles on Islam in 2008 on the parish level, which soon grew to a few chapters worth of material, and so the idea for a book-length treatment was born. ‘Facing Islam: What the Ancient Church has to say about the Religion of Muhammad’, is the result of several years of intensive investigation in the field, and went through several stages of peer review to reach its final form. Endorsements have come from Orthodox pastors and monastics, as well as from noted Islam scholars. Mr. Sidway’s blog, Facing Islam, continues his work, and recently passed 350,000 views. His original articles have been published at OCA.org, RaymondIbrahim.com and internationally in Russia and the United Kingdom. He has been a sought after speaker at Orthodox parishes since 2010.

Ralph was received into the Holy Orthodox Faith in 1987 and was catechized at St Michael Orthodox Church (Antiochian) in Louisville KY by Fr. Alexander Atty of beloved memory (former Dean of St Tikhon’s Seminary). A parishioner at Christ the Savior-Holy Spirit in Cincinnati OH (OCA, Fr. Steven Kostoff, Rector) since 2001, Mr. Sidway has served as webservant, on the parish council and in the sacristy, and sings in the choir.  He holds a BA in Philosophy from Transylvania University, Lexington Ky (1983), where he was a Rhodes Scholarship Finalist, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
