During the third century, a time of tremendous social upheaval when famine, plagues, and existential threats to the empire were the reality of the day, a bishop who suffered through three persecutions wrote a commentary on the book of Revelation. His hope: to encourage the church to be a faithful witness. A Faithful Witness explores Bishop Victorinus' The Commentary on the Apocalypse by the Blessed John. The first commentary on the book of Revelation in the early church, it calls the church to allegiance to Jesus Christ. Dr. Cooper weaves the story of a body of believers suffering through desperate times in the Roman Empire into the story of the church in our day. With thought provoking personal reflection questions, A Faithful Witness will challenge you to consider what it means to live the Christian life during tumultuous times.
