The first in a fantastic trilogy of adventure stories set at the time of the early church. Bryn and his brother are taken captive following the Boudiccan Revolt. They find themselves in Rome where Bryn is sold as a slave into a rich man's house and his brother is forced into gladiatorial combat. Befriended by no-one except Tiro, a Christian and fellow slave, Bryn tries desperately to free his brother from the deadly battles. A brilliant evocation of the life of the early church. The dynamic story shows how God helps those in need, protects the weak and shows his love through his church.
