    Guirguis the Torchbearer

    , ,
    This historical fiction novel describes the life of the Coptic Christians a century after the Arab conquest of Egypt. It is being published posthumously, from the Egyptian author Iris Habib El-Masry (1910–1994), known for her “Story of the Coptic Church,” the first comprehensive book on Coptic history that follows a modern historical approach. This novel follows Guirguis, the protagonist of this novel, who was commanded by his brother to be a “torchbearer” in the community he lived in, thus fulfilling Christ’s commandment to be a “light unto the world.” The setting of this novel, as well as the historical circumstances, are based on real facts. Guirguis lived in eighth-century Egypt, during the reign of the ruthless Muslim Caliph, Marwan II of Umayyad (reigned from 744-750). Although very little is known and said about eighth-century Egypt, especially about the Copts who lived during that dark time, El-Masry brilliantly portrays all of the monumental scenes and brings to life names that would have long been forgotten in history.

    Dialogue with the Divine

    , ,
    Pope Shenouda III is a treasure chest. Oh, if one could peek inside! This book is exactly the vent through which we can peek into his soul. Here we taste the sweetness of his God-centered life through his dialogues with God. We cannot say that we can see the full scope of his intimate relationship with God, but for a moment we can feel and share in this longing for unity with the Lord, speaking to Him from his heart, debating with Him, discussing with Him, and begging Him. This book certainly can teach a person how to pray: how to have a dialogue with the Divine. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III began holding weekly spiritual meetings since the 1960s when he was ordained a bishop, and so the contents of this book are gleaned from as early as those meetings and his various publications, spanning over 50 years of intimate conversations with God. We pray that this book inspires the readers to a deeper relationship with the Divine.

    , ,
    Available Now!  eBook also available: AMAZON KINDLE 
    About the Book In this book, you will follow along the mere thirty-eight-year-long journey spent by this honored presbyter on the earth. It begins with his early life and humble beginnings as a servant in his home-city of Aswan and later in the suburbs of bustling Cairo, then proceeds to describe his mysterious call to the priesthood in war-torn Sinai, and culminates with his courageous witness to the Christian faith, and hence, his brutal, yet triumphant, martyrdom. But the story does not end there, as you become acquainted with the esteem that the Lord God holds for His martyrs, manifested in the events following Father Mina’s martyrish death. The hope is that all may be encouraged to model the resilient faith of this contemporary martyr, who persistently emphasized, “My true home is in heaven.”
