The history of the Christian Church is written in blood and tears.
This book, based on historical facts, relates what happened in Rome in the summer of 64AD. It is a gripping chronicle. However, the actual events that occurred are worse than can be related in a book.
In the story we meet Quintus, the central character. He is a typical Roman boy, who through a number of ordeals experienced the grace of God. His mentor is Davus, a copper-smith. He shows us the prejudges held by the Romans against the followers of Christ.
The story retells some of the most shocking deeds performed against the Christians by Emperor Nero and his aides.
We also meet Aquilla, Priscilla, Demas, Caecillia and others, all faithful Christians. They were called to witness of their faith.
The book also gives an impression of daily life of the first Christian community in Rome. It shows the difficulties that the heathen Romans placed in the path of the gospel, and how God worked events to His good.
Through God’s grace and mercy the simple people held onto their faith.
