    A SPRING IN SINAI — Hieromartyr Mina Abood: His Life, Miracles, and Martyrdom in Post-Revolution Egypt

    , ,
    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.”

    Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians

    ,
    COLOSSIANS: THE SURVIVAL OF CHRISTIANITY IN COLOSSE The budding congregation of Christians in the city of Colosse was threatened by the temptation to relapse to paganism. St. Paul steps in by writing this letter to warn them against apostasy, as well as other philosophies of men (such as Judaistic ceremonialism, angel worship, and an improperly harsh form of asceticism). The singular message St. Paul wanted to impress upon them was: Christ is the fullness of God and is the all-sufficient Savior. 1 THESSALONIANS: KEEPING THE SECOND COMING IN MIND St. Paul tries to remind the Thessalonians about the need to maintain their steadfastness in the faith, and he instructs them on how to live a holy life, worthy of their calling. He brings to their mind the Second Coming of Christ as a means of motivation and also comfort in light of the persecutions they had been facing. 2 THESSALONIANS: THE SECOND COMING—NOT JUST YET Having brought to their minds the Second Coming of Christ, some Thessalonians thought that the persecution they were enduring meant Christ was coming now (as in, in their lifetime), to the point that people quit their work! St. Paul corrects their misunderstanding and motivates them for continued spiritual progress.

    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.

    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.

    Heaven: A Coptic Orthodox Christian Perspective

    ,
    Heaven: A Coptic Orthodox Christian Perspective By Bishop Youannis  
    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.

    Monastic Treasures for All of Us

    ,
    Monastic Treasures for All of Us A Series of Homilies and Lectures by the Thrice-Blessed Pope Shenouda III of Blessed Memory  
    About the Book Although these homilies and lectures were delivered to monastic communities, the spiritually nourishing teachings reflect on biblical teachings that are applicable to all readers seeking to pursue a life of holiness. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III of Blessed Memory draws from decades of spiritual dedication, formally beginning from his joining the monastery, and thereafter being ordained a priest, then hegumen, bishop, and finally chosen as the 117th Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria, leading the Coptic Church as he excelled by God's grace in his role as a shepherd and teacher for over 40 years before his departure in 2012. His deeply moving homilies are reminiscent of the famed sayings of the early desert fathers, and bring to mind the famed oratory influence and eloquence of the fourth century archbishop of Constantinople St. John Chrysostom (the "golden-mouthed").

    On Repentance & Defeating Despair: Letters to Theodore by St. John Chrysostom

    ,
    On Repentance & Defeating Despair: Letters to Theodore by St. John Chrysostom Volume 1 of The Early Church Today Series by St. Mary & St. Moses Abbey Press  
    About the Book Do you ever feel God is an oppressive judge looking to punish you? Have you ever felt defeated because of your sins or because you feel you are so far away from where you know you should be with God? Whether you have just fallen into a particular sin you are ashamed of, or have a repeated beloved sin which you feel you are unable to extinguish, this book is for you.  St. John Chrysostom wrote two letters to his friend Theodore, who along with St. John and his friend Basil, committed to a life of celibacy and spiritual living; however, Theodore was unable to keep his commitments and later fell into lustful passions and strayed quite afar off from godliness. These letters are St. John’s heartfelt words written in anguish to his lost friend pleading for his return.  The purpose of this book is to help make St. John’s letters to Theodore accessible to modern audiences. Various editorial supplements and revisions have been implemented to help achieve that end, including using modern words in place of archaic language, and providing summary captions to make it easier to understand and follow along, all while intently focusing on preserving the original meaning of the author. This marks the first of several, God willing, books to be published as part of The Early Church Today Series, which aims to manifest the richness of the early Chuch and its relevance to today.    The Early Church Today Series  The early leaders of the Church, tasked with shepherding Christ’s flock, left us spiritual wealth that is too often neglected in modern times. The Early Church Today Series, published by the St. Mary & St. Moses Abbey Press, aims to help make that richness more accessible to readers, inviting them to see the applicability of the early Church to our walk with God today. By sharing practical selections from the writings of the early Church, aided by meaningful editorial supplements and revisions, each book will attempt to diminish impediments and bring to light what the Church has to offer.
