From the Foreword, by Bishop Mattaos (bishop and abbot of the Syrian monastery): "The first Arabic edition of this book was in 1983, and it was soon sold out because of the important topic the book talks about, which is the miracle of moving the Mokattam Mountain and the great spiritual persons spoken of in it, such as the great Pope Abram Ibn Zaraa and Saint Samaan the Tanner. And now the Church of Saint Samaan the Shoemaker in Mokattam is so kind as to publish a second [English], augmented and revised edition. To this edition a chapter was added dealing with the discovery of the remains of Samaan the Shoemaker." (The first English edition was published in 1994, the second in 1998.)
