I haven't read this book, but I heard it's chock full of pastoral wisdom and spirituality.  The late bishop HG Bishop Youannis of Gharbia wrote "Paradise of the Spirit" that I've been told by many Copts of old times was an excellent piece of writing, now translated in English:

Enjoy!

Thank you, Mina!

The Oriental Orthodox Library has works from various Oriental Orthodox Church Fathers:

It also has Fr. V.C.Samuel's The Council of Chalcedon Re-Examined, which is an excellent resource for understanding the Council of Chalcedon, and the various Christological issues involved, from an Oriental Orthodox point of view.

Another excellent book about the Christology of the Oriental Orthodox is Fr. Peter's new book, Orthodox Christology:

There is now a second edition of Fr. Peter's Orthodox Christology, with additional articles in it:

Fr Athanasius Iskander serves in Canada. His website has lots of good material in English.

The above site translates some of the works of St. Gregory of Nareg, and links to translations of others.  It would be a good resource for those interested in this saint.

Scholarly articles are available here, a lot of them in English written by Dr. Youhanna Nessim Youssef on various Coptic studies.

There are some other pdf's scattered around if you google his name and do a thorough search.  I am trying to save all his pdf's and collect them together.
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.
