Coptic priest Zakaria Botros fights fire with fire

Raymond Ibrahim, National Review [Read the Article]

“The very public conversion of high-profile Italian journalist Magdi Allam — who was baptized by Pope Benedict in Rome on Saturday — is only the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, Islamic cleric Ahmad al-Qatani stated on al-Jazeera TV a while back that some six million Muslims convert to Christianity annually, many of them persuaded by Botros’s public ministry… Many Western critics fail to appreciate that, to disempower radical Islam, something theocentric and spiritually satisfying — not secularism, democracy, capitalism, materialism, feminism, etc. — must be offered in its place. The truths of one religion can only be challenged and supplanted by the truths of another. And so Father Zakaria Botros has been fighting fire with fire.”

This is a great article!  Thanks to the editors for bringing this important work to our attention.  Let us remember to pray for Fr. Botros’ ministry and safety.  Does anyone know if he is Catholic or Orthodox?  A proper interreligious dialogue definitely requires us to speak with the same language, whether terminology or foreign language.  Are the converts entering the Coptic church?
