About the Book

This sequel deals with the persecution of Christians as Domitian and Trajan, Roman emperors, intensify their reign of terror. After Onesimus was stoned to death by the idol-worshippers, Jacobus is determined to continue the work that Onesimus, his father, begun, even though there is now a price on his own head. Moving from one cave to the next in order to keep his family safe, he battles the elements, wild animals, and the pagans who hate him. Finally, they move to Arezzo, a small town in Italy, located at the foot of the Apennine Mountains, where they could worship openly. Here, they continued spreading the Gospel. However, soon persecution reached Arezzo, and they were sorely tested. This is a beautiful picture of love, and it will allow you to share the life of a dedicated minister of the Gospel through very difficult times.
