“Let me tell you about the day I died.”
So begins the story of Roman citizen Aulus Aurelius who, along with his family, was murdered for his faith in AD 67. Since then he has observed Earth from Heaven and now writes these letters to the modern church. With unique insights on eternity, prayer, and the Kingdom of God, he will challenge today’s Christian to have intimacy with God in private and boldness before others in public.
Aulus tells of:
• A Vietnamese Christian who sifted through human waste in prison latrines for the Bible.
• An Eastern European orphan who died and changed history.
• A girl saved from suicide by through three simple words, “I love you.”
Letters From a Martyred Christian is page-turning fiction that will grip readers from the first sentence but also encourages practical application. It is designed with Christian discipleship classes, small groups, and book clubs in mind. Discussion questions for each chapter are included.
