This book highlights the continuity and vitality of the Coptic Church in Egypt, exploring the unprecedented revival and spiritual renaissance in the 1940s and 1950s, and continued under Pope Shenouda III. A large part of the book is focusing on the examination and description of churches and monasteries, as well as some aspects of the church life in the monasteries, the parishes and in popular festivals around the country. It introduces the main Coptic families that assisted in the revival of the modern church, and the spread of Coptic traditions around the world due to Christian emigration.
