Book Presentation 21/7/2014
In the comfortable, spacious and always hospitable premises of the Orthodox Academy of Crete in Chania, Kolimvari, the Ecclesiastical Bookstore of our Metropolis and “En Plo” Publications presented the book “The Torn Veil,” which was translated at the initiative of His Eminence Archbishop of Crete Eirinaios. It is about the true and breathtaking story of the conversion of a young girl from Pakistan, Esther Gulshan from Islam to Christianity. Esther, being confined in a wheelchair since she was struck by typhoid fever, sought healing and freedom not only of her body but also of her soul, because despite the fact, as she confesses, that for years she had been reading the Quran and praying regularly, yet she had lost all hope that the situation would change.
