SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (ANS) -- This year's Seoul International Book Fair welcomed more than 580 publishers from 20 countries. The Fair took place from June 20-24, 2012 in Coex, Southern Seoul, South Korea.
In view of this, Christian publisher Urim Books highlighted two titles of Arabic translated books entitled “Tasting Eternal Life Before Death” and “The Way of Salvation” (The Message of the Cross), both of which were written by international evangelist, Dr. Jaerock Lee.
Mr. Hongki Park, Member of Expert Committee in Lee & Ko Law Firm, said, “I was suffering from pollution disease, a relatively rare disease. In the meantime I happened to find a copy of ‘Tasting Eternal Life Before Death’ in a bookstore. While reading it I became assured that I could also be healed.”
The book, he said, led him to attend Manmin Central Church, at which Dr. Lee is the senior pastor, and during a service, he experienced healing and now is enjoying good health and a happy Christian life with his family.
The Arabic versions of “Tasting Eternal Life before Death” and “The Way of Salvation: (The Message of the Cross) are being distributed to major book stores in Middle Eastern countries including the Antoine book store in Lebanon and an also at www.Amazon.com,” said a spokesman for Urim Books.
Urim displayed 80 books authored by Dr. Jaerock Lee including the series Bible study books for children, 190 volumes of the books published in 40 languages including Arabic in the fair.
