  • An interesting look at the Coptic Church in Egypt from its beginnings to recent times Including information of the 21 martyrs, this is a religious group and place I was only slightly familiar with and I found the author s descriptions and conclusions interesting and thoughtprovoking The novella is a quick read but a worth while one.Full disclosure I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
