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 an 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 the character depicted are fictional, the work follows the historical sequence of Roman persecutions and accurately portrays the brutality and cruelty that early believers suffered.
"How can any reviewer do justice to a book such as this! It is a book that probes the heart and so graphically pictures moving accounts of suffering and martyrdom."—Sword of the Lord"This little book should be read to ask ourselves: Is what I believe worth dying for? If not, why believe it? We found it an interesting, challenging novel!"—Biblical Evangelist
