Perpetua


Under Roman persecution in the beginning years of the early church, stories of powerful and inspiring faith emerged.  The truth of the Gospel was spreading through the Roman empire and people whose lives had been transformed by Christ refused to deny Him no matter the threat.  Perpetua, a young lady from Carthage in North Africa, recorded her experience as a Christian facing the might of Rome.  Her story inspired many to stand firm, and inspires followers of Christ just as powerfully today no matter what opposition we might face.
