Wakulla Book Review: The Coptic Martyr of Cairo by Martin Roth
Wakulla Book Review
“The Coptic Martyr of Cairo” by Martin Roth
The persecuted Christian church in Al-Harawi is about to be the center of attention. The cause of this is Rafa Harel, a spiritual art professor who is conducting an archaeological dig in the church’s basement. He and his team discover the body of a retired priest during their dig. This starts off a cascade of events that go beyond Rafa’s understanding of the differences of religious views in Egypt.
The author seems to be pointing out how even members of the same religion may view their faith differently.
The theme or themes I see are all based on the difference in faith. There is the Muslim vs Christian issue. The fight vs martyr issue. The whole timeline issue comes into play as well.
The author seems to want to get across the importance of the persecution of Christians around the world. To also understand that there are many ways to see faith.
This book was enjoyable. I had to rethink the way I see my faith according to a large view of what it is to be a Christian.

A WAKULLA BOOK REVIEW
I want to personally thank all the men who are reviewing the books written by JOHN 3:16 AUTHORS. I am thankful that we are able to bless them and appreciate the encouragement given to us by their reviews.
Their insights, comments, and encouragement mean a lot. Steve said I (Lorilyn Roberts) could visit the prison and I hope to do that sometime in the near future. I ultimately look forward to the day when we are free in the Lord's presence to worship together our Risen King!
Each WEEK (usually on Tuesday), we are posting reviews from Wakulla Correctional inmates of John 3:16 books.
Inmates are loving the new books from John 3:16 authors. Chaplain Steve Fox is adding the new books to the prison library in this initiative to "change lives to ensure a safer Florida."
