The Word: The Origin of Man highlights the history of God with mankind reviewed through the interpretation of the early Coptic Orthodox Church founded in Egypt around 60 AD. Its focus is on the rich background rooted in years of tradition, wisdom, and knowledge of ancient Christians of the Middle East known today as the Coptic people. This book illustrates the continuity of God as a Father in dealing with mankind from Adam through His Presence as the Son of Man and today through the Holy Spirit. The epic of God's relationship with us was the moment of His crucifixion followed by His resurrection. The glorious outcome was the defeat of Satan and the redemption of mankind from his original sin committed against God in paradise and His provision of eternal salvation. Jesus Christ is the only means to get from earth to heaven. This book is a tool for learning, self-improvement, and growth to help readers make the important choices leading to salvation.
