Full Product Description
"... if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing ..."
Perpetua, a wealthy noblewoman just coming of age in Carthage, discovers Jesus at a time when Christians are being thrown to the beasts in city ampitheaters for sport. Rejecting the gods of the ancient Roman Empire, she embraces a passionate relationship with Jesus and falls in love with a man who shares her faith. Together they navigate the treacherous, bloodthirsty waters of the social culture, but every step seems to take them closer to the ultimate sacrifice.
"... I screamed. Ba'al's statue seemed alive. A path opened through the crowd, and I stood alone before him. He knew me. I flung my head back, letting the hood fall, and slowly raised my arm, pointing steadily at his image. "You," I cried aloud, "are not God!" ..."
