This popular presentation of the life of St. Ephrem in sixteen chapters in Arabic was originally printed at the Dominican Press in Mosul. It begins with the state of the Church at Ephrem’s appearance, his birth and an associated miracle, his early life and mistreatment by his parents, and then moves to his entrance into the Church and Christian instruction, his time in Nisibis and subsequent removal to Edessa and call to monasticism, his teaching and disciples, and finally the loss felt at his death, his faith, his devotion to Scripture, some of his writings and his elegant writing style. This work will be of interest to scholars of Eastern Christianity as well as to general Arabic-speaking readers.
