Luke Davis has done an impressive job of telling the history of medieval Christianity for young adults through a skilful use of story and traditional narrative. Highly recommended!

Luke Davis selects pivotal moments from history, to which he applies an imagination like that of a Hollywood filmmaker. The past jumps into razor–sharp focus, as the reader sees, hears, and feels these episodes happening once again.

… a unique insight into the controversies of the church and how faithful people stood firm in their faith and held the gospel high.
Alistair Chalmers, Assistant Pastor of Bruntsfield Evangelical Church, Edinburgh
With sparkling prose, backed by solid research, Luke Davis makes church history come alive for the young reader (and readers of all ages!). … offers engaging historical fiction but also provides timelines, factual summaries of significant figures and events, and insightful reflection.
Ben Wagner, Rector, Anglican Church of the Resurrection, Chesterfield, Missouri
Luke Davis has given the reader a ringside seat to the parade of people who have made a difference in the history of the church. Sorting out heresies within and persecutions without, the church called for courageous men and women who stood for the truth. Those are the people you will find in the pages of this book. So sit back and enjoy, and learn how God used his people to care for and guard his church.
