Preaching the gospel in the world of Islam: Alexandrian Patriarch Shenouda III (1923-2012)
Languages of publication
This paper focuses on the published books of the 117th Alexandrian Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church Shenouda III (1923-2012). He is widely recognized as one of the most significant figures of the Egyptian Christian tradition of the 20th century. The mission of the Coptic Orthodox Church to preach the gospel in the Egyptian society is carried out in the context of the majority religion of Islam. This means that the proclamation of the gospel by words is considered a cause of conflict. The paper presents Shenouda´s theological reflection on Islam by analyzing two of his monothematic books Quran and Christianity and The Myth of Barnabas Gospel. The last part of the paper deals with Shenouda´s pastoral concept of preaching the gospel within predominantly Muslim society where religion of Islam is an important part of its constitution.
