St Mark the Evangelist, the work of love and dedication of Serena Fass, is an exquisitely illustrated record that brings to life the rich history, witness and ministry of Saint Mark and the Coptic Church. Foreword by His Eminence Archbishop Angaelos and Introduction by John Julius Norwich.
Serena Fass has travelled to almost every place where St Mark set foot and preached the Word in the first century AD. She has visited Egypt many times since her first visit in 1970 and was inspired by her Coptic friends to compile this record of St Mark, the founder of their church in c. 68 AD.
Serena first visited Venice as a teenager and was spellbound by the city. After many subsequent visits, often with John Julius Norwich accompanying fundraising groups on behalf of the Venice-in-Peril Fund, she feels she has come full circle with this new book on St Mark the Evangelist.
Serena Fass lectures on all her books on Jesus and the Early Church in the UK, Geneva, Bulgaris and Washington, and has met with leaders of nearly all Christian traditions, both in England and in Greece, Cyrpus, Kerala (India) and Jerusalem. They have constantly given encouragement to her in producing these books which are richly illustrated, mostly with her own photographs, as a means of spreading the Gospel.
