Again, it is my hope that this book series will help readers see the early Christian families as people, and to provide an overview of the times they lived in.
It is my prayer that after reading this book you will have an understanding of how the early church faced the challenges of ‘holding fast the faith’.
Please allow me to introduce you to the second book in the Apostle John series….
Grow in Grace
In Grow in Grace, the Apostle John series continues….
Catch up on ‘old friends’ from Hold the Faith; meet new ones, discover the high price the Roman centurion, Publius, had to pay. Live under the shadow of the Roman patrols, and the ever-present threat of the arena.
Find out how Benjamin resolved his crisis of faith over Deborah… and what about the apostle John? Arrested again, how did he cope this time… what about his family, how do they handle the stress this time? What threat are the younger members of the visiting brethren from Cyprus under?
As Grow in Grace unfolds, you will look deeper into the lives of the brethren in Ephesus, again walking in the shoes of the first century Christians.
Primarily, they are people… men and women with hopes, fears and loves. When adversity comes, do the brethren hold fast, or do they lose heart and turn away? Some do.
The pressure increases on the fledgling Christians to accept that the emperor Domitian is ‘lord and god’… something contrary to their faith.
An encouraging comment...
Funny thing, today’s chapter being about trusting in God…I really needed to hear that today. I have this tendency to worry…and some days it is harder to fight than others. Thanks for this particular chapter.
