|How to Relate to Children
Bringing up children in a Christian environment and instilling Christian values is the most important duty of parents and servants alike. This book tells about the characteristics of children in two stages: early childhood and late childhood. In order to relate to children, one must know their mentality.
This book addresses, in the context of theological dialogue, some points of dissimilarity between the Coptic Orthodox Church and our Protestant brethren, namely Baptism, Tradition, Intercession, Venerating the Holy Virgin, her perpetual virginity, Fasting and more.
When you know your enemy and his methods of fighting, you can be on guard against him. This book explains to you these methods. It explains how the devil works, and reveals to you his attributes and the techniques he uses to get hold of Christs children.
The life of ministry, of serving God, begins with discipleship. And the deeper the individual goes in his discipleship, the more successful and effective is his ministry. Blessed is he who lives as a disciple throughout his life, learning every day.

|Contemplations on The Book of Jonah
The holy Church’s concern over the story of Jonah the Prophet with the Ninevites has surpassed her concern for many other Biblical stories. She designated for it a feast, preceded by a three-day fast for the whole congregation in strict asceticism in order to guide us to repent as the people of Nineveh did. The story of Jonah is more than a prophet being swalled by a large fish. This book will help bring to life the spiritual significance and depth of the story of Jonah the Prophet.
|Lord How? Contemplations on Psalm 3
Previously presented was Psalm “19 and 20″ “The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble” in one book. It is the first psalm of the third hour prayer. Here Pope Shenouda III offers you another book about a psalm of the morning prayer.
|Homosexuality, The Ordination of Women|
Almost all of this book is a rejection of the erroneous understanding of the verse in the Bible which says: To Him who loves us and…Has made us to be a kingdom and priests…(Rev. 1:16), which the Brotherhood say means either: that we are all priests or, that there is only one priest, who is Christ. In this book, however, you will read: 1) A defense of the Old Testament. 2) A thorough examination of the sacrament of the Eucharist. 3) A study o the authority to lose and bind 4) A reply to many other objections, including the incorrect interpretations of various verses, such as, Do not call anyone on earth father, Nor are you to be called teacher and ..You are not to be called Rabbi, for you have only one Master and you are all brothers (Matt 23:8-10) 5) The duties of the priesthood and its titles and authority.
|The Release of The Spirit
What is to be released from the spirit ? The answer is that the spirit, while on earth, strives to be released from many things which this book will tell you about.. However, there is something else on earth which I think the spirit cannot be released from however it tries!

Repentance is not a stage through which we pass through, then finish from. But it is life. It is a daily work that we practice everyday, since we sin everyday and are in need of repentance.

|Return to God
The most dangerous thing about sin is that it means a separation from God; being cut off from Him in ones heart, in ones love, in ones will and in ones activity. It is to be parted from Him on earth and in heaven. How can we return back to Him?
