A new book in the Coptic series of SVS Press is set for release on April 22:

Written by His Grace Bishop Suriel of Melbourne, the book highlights the life and career of St. Habib Girgis, the father of the Coptic theological Renaissance of his time, a time filled with much corruption and darkness in the Coptic Church, especially among the highest clergy.  The Coptic Orthodox Church had one true Orthodox leader despite the failure of three popes at the time, and it was Dr. Habib Girgis.

I can't wait to get my hands on this book.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I'm really looking forward to reading it too!
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

HG Bishop Suriel was in our parish Friday evening talking about St. Habib Girgis:

I'm so glad this was recorded!  I'll watch later.
