New Books Present Antiochian History

The Rev. Dn. Hans Elhayek, Manager of Publications for the Antiochian Archdiocese, announces the release of two new book titles.

The Ancient Church on New Shores: Antioch in North America, authored by Economos Antony Gabriel, is a comprehensive history of the Antiochian Archdiocese that emphasizes the virtues of perseverance, struggle, and determination. The announcement notes that Fr. Antony Gabriel offers "a lucid presentation of our history in simile to the strivings of Saints Peter and Paul, the Founders of the Holy See of Antioch." Read a book review of The Ancient Church, by the V. Rev. Timothy Ferguson.

 The second book, Never Say You Can’t: Memoirs of a Lebanese-Syrian American Educator by Alice Cury Farkouh, is a record of a family's history through four generations. The author notes that she wanted to preserve her memories as a matter of record for her family, and also wanted to highlight the contributions of the Lebanese-Syrian American community to

 American life and culture.
