Product Description

Personal narratives are powerful instruments for teaching, both for conveying information and for forming character. The martyrdom accounts preserved in the literature of early Christianity are especially intense and dramatic. However, these narratives are not readily available and are often written in intimidating prose, making them largely inaccessible for the average reader.

This introductory text brings together key early Christian martyrdom stories in a single volume, offering new, easy-to-read translations and expert commentary. An introduction and explanatory notes accompany each translation. The book not only provides a vivid window into the world of early Christianity but also offers spiritual encouragement and inspiration for Christian life today.

    While I am still reading this book, I have been impressed with the scholarship and readability of Dr. Litfin's work. I have a great interest in early church history, and find that I learn something new with each writer's perspective. Dr. Litfin's Evangelical background, but also, education in a secular State University (UVA) further interested me.

    I would recommend this read to all believers.
