As an enquirer I am interested in obtaining several books. Is there a website or internet address for the BOPress? I don't get anywhere with search engines for some reason, so help would be most appreciated.

I discovered the following books all available through Amazon UK - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/">http://www.amazon.co.uk/</a><!-- m -->


Otto Meinardus "Two Thousand Years of Coptic Christianity"

Mark Gruber "Journey Back to Eden"

Christian Cannuyer "Coptic Egypt ? The Christians of the Nile"

Brahana Selassie "Towards a Fuller Vision ? My life in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (A Short History: Part One)"

Benedicta Ward "The Sayings of the Desert Fathers" (also several other editions of the lives & sayings of the Desert Fathers)

Bishop Kallistos Ware "The Inner Kingdom"

They all seemed reasonably and sensibly priced to me... I also discovered a copy for sale of Tadros Malaty's "Introduction to the Coptic Orthodox Church" but priced at ?147.99 !!! you may prefer to fly to Egypt and buy a copy there. Alternatively you could just download it from the following web address <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.copticchurch.net/topics/thecopticchurch/Intro_to_the_Coptic_Church_fr_yacoub_malaty.pdf">http://www.copticchurch.net/topics/thec ... malaty.pdf</a><!-- m -->
Or there again as I happen to know you're local to us you could always borrow a copy from our Church library!

There are a number of books available from the British Orthodox Press (accessed through the British Orthodox Church website) including Fr V C Samuel's "The Council of Chalcedon Re-Examined", "The History of the Coptic Patriarchs to 849 AD", "The Letters of Severus of Antioch", "The Syriac Chronicle of Zachariah of Mitylene" (a resource of writings from the anti-Chalcedonian resistance) and numerous commentaries.

Thank you Father Simon.

It's hard to know quite what you are looking at without a little guidance.
