"I loved it, especially as I approached the end of the book. I think it would be a good book for kids ages eight through fifteen to learn about Ancient Rome and the persecution of the Christians at that time."
Glaucia, the Greek Slave masterfully depicts the intricacies of a momentous time in human history. Ancient Rome and Greece are the backdrop for this dramatic account of the early Christians, whose belief in the one true God stands in stark contrast to the polytheistic world in which they live. Great faith, perseverance, and unyielding courage are paramount as they live according to what they know to be right and true.
