The young Roman mother who chooses Christ

Wild beasts could not shake her faith

It is the year AD 203 in Carthage, North Africa. Perpetua, an affluent young mother, is charged with converting to Christianity and is sent to prison without her baby. Her freedom would be secured easily, if she’ll simply offer one pinch of incense in honor to the Roman gods. What will her decision be? Perpetua’s diary captures one of the most influential, true stories of the Early Church. Share the story of this Torchlighter with a new generation!
