Item description for Martyr of the Catacombs: A Tale of Ancient Rome: A Novel by Anonymous...

This classic work describes the factual persecution that early Christians experienced as they lived out their lives in the catacombs beneath Rome. It tells the dramatic story of Marcellus, a captain in the Praetorian Guard, who trusts Christ as his Savior and becomes a despised Christian. He must confront the severe persecution that followers of Jesus Christ endured. Penned by anonymous nineteenth-century author, Martyr of the Catacombs has challenged and encouraged readers for over one hundred years to remain faithful to the Lord Jesus. While his characters depicted are fictional, the work follows the historical sequence of Roman persecutions and accurately portrays the brutality and cruelty that early believers suffered.

Publishers Description
Told through fictional characters, Martyr of the Catacombs will help the reader understand the history of the early church and the severe persecution it experienced.

Gripping Historical Fiction  Apr 10, 2008
This is gripping historical fiction that vividly portrays what Christians had to endure during persecution by the Roman Empire. It makes one thankful of how much religious freedom we have today. It inpires one to a greater service to God. Should be read by all Christians so as to inspire oneself out of complaceny in the faith.
Inspirational!!!!!!!  Jun 2, 2006
This book is definitely very inspirational, and I would recommend it for readers of all ages! The book is written ina a way that is easily readable and intensely captivating. The story line is so inspirational that I could imagine one day turning it into an epic motion picture! This is a story of searching for truth with an open heart. It is a bit sad yet very memorable . . .and like I already said . . .INSPIRATIONAL!!!!!
May We Be So Faithful  Aug 4, 2005
I read this book over 20 years ago, and it still comes to my mind even to this day. I highly recommend this book for those interested in what it would be like to live your faith under threat of physical suffering and death.

I live in a land blessed
Free from almost every pain
Resting in a comfortable lifestyle
Material riches displayed as gain
I worship at church
With nary a dread
Little fear for my family
Ending up dead
But for many Christians
Who live else where
To stand for Christ
Brings the ultimate price to bear
Dying by the hundreds
Each and every day
Tortured and murdered
In unspeakable ways
While I strive to gather
All the toys that I crave
They bury their loved ones
In desolate makeshift graves
Pray they will be bold
In proclaiming their faith
And meet death if need be
With Spirit-filled grace
If this has disturbed you
And your day I did taint
Perhaps I have jolted you to pray
And remember suffering saints
A bit "over the top", but a nice read  Apr 10, 2003
Though not a literary gem, this story is an accurate depiction of life in ancient Rome. It gets too preachy at times for a novel, but is still enjoyable.
wonderful epic of Roman History with the Christians...  Dec 11, 2001
It will inspire you greatly in the works of Christian martyr. It is also heart stirring story should you go through the persections. In the Roman Empire Era, the christians went through one of the worst suffering in the history. But God was gracious and blessed their work in reaching millions of souls in those era. It shall make you feel to run out and proclaim loudly "I'm proud to be a Christian!"

Buy one for your library, it is worth it, trust me if you are proud of your Christian heritage.
