Cyprian of Carthage's story is one of incredible perseverance for the sake of the gospel. Living through a time of terrible persecution towards Christians, Cyprian wrestled with questions surrounding the church and contributed greatly to the writings on its importance as the bride of Christ. He dealt first-hand with the effects which persecution has on church bodies and offered many insights which are becoming increasingly relevant in the West today.
