St. George’s bookstore is a service site that presents our rich in heritage Coptic Orthodox Church to the world. The Coptic Orthodox Church is based on the teachings of St. Mark, one of the 70 apostles who preached Christianity in Egypt during the reign of the Roman Emperor Nero twelve years after our Lord’s ascension. St. Mark is also one of the four Evangelists, he wrote the gospel that bears his name. There are several prophesies about the Coptic Church in the Old Testament. Isaiah the prophet wrote, “In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border.” [Isaiah 19:19]
One of the goals of our bookstore is to bring together the many great sources within the Coptic Orthodox Church in one location making it easier for parishioners, other church bookstores as well as those who don’t have access to such resources to get the spiritual food necessary for them.
