      Dear All

      "Quintessence of Religious Doctrine" (The English translation
      of 'Mathopadesa Sarangal', written by Mor Dionysuis Geevarghese
      Vattasseril), is released on 14 February 2007 by H.G Thomas Mor
      Themotheos of Kottayam Diocese and H.G Dr. Geevarghese Mor Koorilos
      of Niranom diocese, at St. Joseph's Cathedral,Kottayam.

      The book was released by presenting the first copy of it to Mor
      Koorilos by Mor Themotheos, in the presence of around 50
      distinguished personalities and invited guests.

      Very Rev. Kuriakose Corepicopa Kizhakkadathu, the Kottayam Diocesan
      Secretary, gave the welcome speech. Mor Thimotheos delivered
      presidential address and released the book. The translator Prof. O.M
      Mathew introduced the book to the press and guests.

      Mor Koorilos, Rev. Fr. V M Geevarghese Kallooparampil - the senior
      priest of Kottayam diocese, Rev. Fr. Jojo from Kaldaya Syrian
      Church, Rev. Fr. Cherian Kottayil and Rev. Dr. Samuel Geevarghese -
      Secretary of the Bible society of Kerala auxiliary, delivered the
      felicitations.

      Mr. Bibby Abraham, Chief Editor of Viswasa Samrakshakan, proposed

      "SOCMNet.org" is represented by one of the SOCM Forum Moderator Mr.
      John Philip Kottaparambil, and an esteemed member Chevalier Daniel
      K.J from Doha, Qatar.

      'Mathopadesa Sarangal' originally written in Malayalam by Mor
      Dionysuis Geevarghese Vattasseril is a comprehensive and summarized
      formulation of the essence of the Syrian Orthodox Theology, based on
      the works of the Church Fathers like Mor Gregorios Bar Ebroyo. This
      great work was prepared and published by the author while he was
      Malankara Malpan of the undivided Malankara Church. Until 1964, this
      book was reprinted in its unaltered form, but later the faction
      separated from the Syrian Orthodox Church started reprinting it with
      alterations to suit their new theology. It is our earnest desire and
      made efforts to make this book available in its original form, and
      is translated into English by a well-known scholar Prof. O.M. Mathew
      Oruvattithara. He has translated the original work with much
      precision and originality. Also, he has appended to each theme a
      commentary to explain the content and the original formulation of
      the author. Prof. Mathew has done a commendable work in his perfect
      translation, as well as his enriching commentary. This book will
      undoubtedly be a valuable resource material for all scholars of the
      faith and doctrines of the Syrian Orthodox Church.

      received from the forum members.

      We dedicate this book to the glory of God and for the edification of
      the Church at large.

      In the service of our Lord,
