    This is a tiny book, but it packs a punch! It's a fictional story set in real historical times. It was interesting to learn about life in the catacombs. I think what affected me most was how these believers from all walks of life (rich, poor, educated, simple, privileged, and destitute) were so willing to give up everything they had--including the safety and security of their entire families--for the sake of the gospel during a time when they didn't have the Bible in book form readily available to them as we do. Much of their walk with the Lord was truly by faith in His daily provision while wondering when their turn in the area would come. They faced death daily, not by firing squad or even guillotine. They faced ferocious animals that would tear them to pieces, being used as a human torches to light the way to the Colosseum, being disemboweled in gladiator fights, etc. It's not a book for the feint of heart, but it is a book for those who would really like to know what true Christianity is and what it costs.

    Although classified as fiction, The Martyr of the Catacombs, which was originally found aboard a ship and lays no claim to it's author, could have easily been based on actual events passed down through oral traditions. It's content will leave you in curious wonder of the magnificance of God and the provisions he makes for us in our day to day lives.

    This small book can easily be read in an afternoon and is sure to pull at the very strings of your heart. It tells the story of Marcellus, a captain in the Praetorian Guard, who while on specific orders to eliminate the Christians hiding beneath the ancient city of Rome, is compelled by their persecution and is marvellously converted. Follow Marcellus through the mountains and valleys of his new found faith and ask yourself if you have the same vigor and zeal to stand up for Christ in the midst of such persecutions if they were ever presented to you.
