Many various and separate lectures were given at the Cathedral, St Mark’s hall at Anba Reweis and at Alexandria ... but remained unassembled under one topic.
Then we selected about twenty lectures to compile this book under the title “The Spiritual Man”.
Perhaps such a subject might cover the whole life and therefore includes all the spiritual lectures. However, in this book we wanted to talk to you about basics, which contain many details...
Each item of these details might need a special book.
The book in your hands is the outcome of lectures, some of which were given in the sixties, some in the seventies and eighties... It was God’s will that they were assembled together from these years. Also, they were published in serial weekly articles in “Watany” newspaper. Then we compiled them in this book.
Here, they are published in a concise way. Perhaps some of these topics may be re-printed in a special book or booklet.
