Call to Prayer

I have a new hero, Fr. Zakaria Boutros, a Coptic priest now living in the United States. While the rest of us are lamenting Islam, Boutros is putting his life on the line to respond. He is apparently winning converts to Christ from al-Islam.

As a disclaimer, the Copts are not Evangelicals. In, fact they are not even part of Orthodox Christian communion. But as Monophysites, they are about as close as you can be to Orthodoxy (as defined by the Nicean Creed). Oddly, the literature published on his website seems somewhat Evangelical in tone, exhorting people to place their faith in Christ and to receive Jesus into their hearts.
