Available for Ordering: The Feast of the Cross (Treasures of the Fathers of the Church)

St. Athanasius & St. Cyril Theological Library, along with the St. Paul Brotherhood Press, joyfully announce the immediate availability of a new book in their popular Treasures of the Fathers of the Church series, The Feast of the Cross.

From the Preface to the book by His Grace Bishop Serapion:

With great joy and enthusiasm, we present to you this book, part of the Treasures of the Fathers of the Church series, on the Feasts of the Cross, which are celebrated in the Coptic Orthodox calendar on 17 Tout (September 27 or 28) and 10 Baramhat (March 19).

This volume consists of eight chapters. The first chapter contains the readings for these feasts, the next chapter contains a thorough introduction to the Feast by our beloved father, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III. May our Good Lord keep him for us for many years and peaceful times to shepherd the Church of God with wisdom, might, and every spiritual virtue. The following chapters contain a compendium of ancient writings, including historical accounts relating to the discovery of the Cross by ancient church historians, theological and biblical meditations on the Cross by the Fathers of the Church, and special catechetical homily attributed to St. Cyril of Jerusalem.

We hope and pray that this work not only introduces each believer to the Holy Scriptures, the Church Fathers and the Church rites, but also provides a deep source of blessing, wisdom and faith. Just as the Lord of Hosts promised to Baruch the prophet, “But I will give you life, as finding a treasure in every place, wherever you go” (Jeremiah 51:35), in every place we search in the Scriptures with the Fathers, we discover a precious Treasure for our souls, the Pearl of Great Price, our Lord Jesus Christ.

You may order this book now through our online catalog directly at this link.
