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.”
Quickview Afterlife, TheologyHeaven: A Coptic Orthodox Christian Perspective By Bishop Youannis$15.99
About the Book Heaven is the aim of all mankind. Our hearts long to attain it. We fervently hope to possess it. We struggle to reach it and be blessed by it. Contemplation on the glories of heaven and what awaits its saints gives those who struggle for it a spiritual push forward and makes them forget all their toils. In this English translation of the classic book, "Heaven," originally written in Arabic and derived from a series of sermons by His Grace Bishop Youannis of the Coptic Orthodox Church, the Late Bishop of Gharbia, Egypt and its Suburbs, we find answers to many common questions about heaven: Will God continue to be merciful as people know Him to be? Will God allow everyone, without any expectations, to enter heaven? What will people do in heaven? Will the saints go straight to heaven after they leave their bodies? What happens after man dies? Will Christ truly come indeed a second time? What will He do? About the Author While living a life of monasticism at the Monastery of the Syrians in Egypt (Dair al-Surian), Bishop Youannis was ordained on December 12, 1971 to serve as bishop over Gharbia, Egypt, and its suburbs (also known as Tanta and its vicinity), He served as a personal secretary of the blessed saint Pope Kyrillos VI, and was tasked with teaching about Church history and rituals, among other subjects, in the theological seminary in Cairo (El Eclerekia). He departed this life on November 4, 1987.
