The Lost Letters of Pergamum by Bruce W. Longenecker

This was a fascinating fictional treatment of the conversion and martyrdom of Antipas. The book contains a lot of background on first century life in Rome. The only irritation, which was not small, was the use of CE on the dates. Still, quite good.

This is a superb book. There are a few places here and there where I think he misses some American and some Protestant nuances, but in the main this is a must read.

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Chind Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
