'I Rejoice in My Chains' offers a raw and detailed account of the political and social unrest in Egypt at the time of President Anwar Sadat in 1981. With His Holiness Pope Shenouda forced under house arrest, we follow the imprisonment of several of his Bishops and laymen. This book tells the story of their faith, the power of prayer and their own experience of God's guiding hand. 

It boasts a truly honest portrayal of the horrid living standards and psychological warfare they endured. Stories never translated before in English. It includes the very personal and moving memoirs of Bishop Beimen as well as the accounts of Bishop Benyamin, Father Boules Basili and Father Youssef Asaad.

Despite the difficulty of these times, this wonderful book promises a smile and spiritual renewal with every page. Your only regret will be that you didn’t read it sooner!
