It’s easy for a Christian to feel like an outsider in today’s secular age. Dr. Sri draws our attention to the early Christian martyrs and reveals how they can inspire us in our walk with the Lord. We learn that the secret of these martyrs wasn’t necessarily their extraordinary strength, but rather, it was their passionate love for Christ.
