On The Ultimate Quest of Being in the Presence of God
This posthumous publication is dedicated to Prof. Ishak's tireless efforts in exploring coptic thought and spirituality.
This book is mainly concerned with the unparalleled experience of spiritual exultation in being in the presence of God. It is preceded by ardour and a willful embarkation to free our souls from any worldly preoccupations. Our bonds with the world should be broken in order to concentrate on what is otherworldly, sublime and divine.
Amazingly the eternal verities dawn upon us in the rare moments of ecstatic revelation. And once we come closer to Him, He in His Providence reveals the Divine Truth that used to be a closed book to most of us.
Hence, we are no longer deluded by the sickening ways of the world as we hasten to be in close communion with the fountain-source of the All-Grace and All-Holiness and virtually with the Lord Who does not abandon those who earnestly seek Him!
