Imagine the dangerous life of an early Christian. You’ve embraced your newfound faith in Christ but fear the risk of persecution or death at the hands of the pagans living around you. Then a trusted friend tells you about some of Jesus' followers who secretly meet. He whispers into your ear: "Look for a fish carved into the entranceway to the burial chambers beside the Via Tiburtina." Even today, modern society recognizes the Christian symbols that kept the early Christians safely connected. They appear all over the place: on churches, bumper stickers, etc, but much of the rich history and symbolism has been lost to us over the centuries. Noted early Christian author Mike Acquilina gives us a behind-the-scenes tour of these precious symbols: their origins in Scripture and in ancient culture and in the preaching of the Church Fathers. Rediscover the zeal of our spiritual fathers as you learn to read their symbolic language. This is truly a fascinating book! Hardcover, 188 pages. More than a hundred illustrations of these early Christian symbols are reproduced throughout the book-reproductions of the ancient originals by Lea Marie Ravotti. T687
