Recently issued: The Concept of Time and Eternity in the New Testament
By: Dr. Maurice Tawadros
Since rising over the world, Christianity has introduced much innovation to man’s concepts, as well as to the principles which are whether unrealized by the human mind or incompletely attained. Christianity has taken such concepts and principles through new depths on the levels of thought and life, among those concepts are “time” and “eternity”.
This book in our hands: “The Concept of Time and Eternity in the New Testament” presented to us by Prof. Dr. Maurice Tawadros, Professor and Head of the Holy Bible Department at the Seminary College and Professor of Biblical Theology at the Institute of Coptic Studies, is considered one of his most valuable books, we are publishing it for the benefits of many.
In his book, Dr. Maurice Tawadros tackles “the Concept of Time and Eternity” in the New Testament, at the Church’s Fathers, then he delivers to us the concepts above as by the philosophers and scientists. I express my thanks to Prof. Dr. Maurice Tawadros for dedicating this precious interpretation to the Coptic Orthodox Cultural Center to be published.
May the Lord compensate all who exerted effort in publishing this valuable work, which we ask God to make a reason of blessing to all who read it, through the intercessions and prayers of St. Virgin Mary, the theotokos, St. Mark the Apostle, the preacher of Egyptian homes, and through the prayers of His Holiness Great Pope Tawadros II, the Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark.
