Two brothers present an offering to the Lord. One is a shepherd, and the other is a plowman. One of the offerings is accepted by God, the other is not. One of the brothers rises against the other and kills him. In the first four chapters of the Bible, we witness the first act of martyrdom (or religious persecution): the murder of Abel, committed by Cain (Gen 4.2-8)

Throughout the Scriptures, we learn about the trials and perecutions of people who chose to live godly lives. From Abel to the prophets, from John the Baptist to the disciples, the world has always rejected the Truth.

In the Shadow of the Cross examines themes of suffering and persecution throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.

There we find reflections and analyzes of nearly 200 Christian specialists from our time or from past centuries. The persecution mentioned in the Bible has never been the subject of such in-depth study. No Bible student should be without this resource.
