Review:

'extensively researched and superbly written' --Evangelicals Now

From the Publisher:

Starting where the Acts of the Apostles ends, THIS HOLY SEED carries the story of the early church along the southern shores of the Mediterranean as far as the Atlantic Ocean and up to the Arab conquest.

Considering the reasons for the spectacular growth of the early church in North Africa and the causes of its equally remarkable collapse, THIS HOLY SEED identifies the greatest lesson of Christian history: that churches flourish and grow so long as they follow Biblical principles, but sicken and die when they abandon them.

The narrative introduces us to some memorable characters - Tertullian, Cyprian, Augustine of Hippo, Origen, Perpetua and her friends - people whose names are now all but forgotten in "the land of the vanished church". Referring back to the original documents, this unusual book recounts their dramatic story of daring faith, loyal devotion and love that was undeniably stronger than death.

THIS HOLY SEED offers a thoroughly evangelical view of Christian history and throws down a serious challenge for the churches of our own day.
