A Crown of Life: A Novel of the Great Persecutionby Brian Patrick Mitchell
A Crown of Life is an epic romance spanning ten pivotal years in the history of the world, beginning in 303, when churches were closed, books were burned, and Christians were forbidden to assemble and later forced to prove their loyalty to the empire by offering a sacrifice to the government's gods. Thousands chose death instead, in what has been known since as the Great Persecution.
Vividly written, with surprising twists, heart-pounding drama, a colorful cast of endearing characters good and bad, and profound insight into life's deepest mysteries, A Crown of Life is an inspiring tale of Christian faith in the face of death. You will weep. You will cheer. You will fall in love. You will learn why they believed and why they died.
