More than ever, the world needs strong leaders and committed teachers who care about the interests of our young children. People like our beloved saint, Habib Girgis. Until today, Archdeacon Habib Girgis remains a pioneer of Coptic religious education. His legacy is timeless and continues to shape the Church to this very day. Whether in our Sunday school classes or our theological colleges.
This book is a groundbreaking study and the first of its kind, offering an in-depth look into the life of St Habib Girgis. It was beautifully written by His Grace Bishop Suriel.
By the mid-nineteenth century, the Coptic Orthodox Church was in trouble. The Coptic identity we know and love today was almost lost. In response, Girgis dedicated his life to advancing religious and theological education. This book follows Girgis’ six-decade-long career as an educator, reformer, dean of a theological college, and pioneer of the Sunday School Movement in Egypt. It details his struggle to implement his vision of a Coptic identity forged through education.
