The Christian faith is now an outlaw religion throughout the Roman Empire. Forced to abandon their homelands, the Christian refugees settle in Ethiopia under the leadership of John Mark, Simon the Cyrene and the apostle Matthew. The House of Theophilus is able to continue publishing Christian literature and establish a university to train future generations. But the new emperor, Domitian, will use his evil powers to try and stop the Christian advances! A new generation of men will document the period 67-99 AD in their travel journals. Follow these brave Christians and witness the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, the great eruption of Mt. Vesuvius at Pompeii, the writing of the Book of Revelations, and the secret location of King Solomon's treasure and the Ark of the Covenant! Sandwiched between the journals are the exciting and suspenseful adventures of the Christians in New Jerusalem, Ethiopia. The psychopathic killer, known as Alexander the Centurion, has an evil plan to poison the Queen Mother of Ethiopia and blame the Christians. Then he will try to steal the treasure of King Solomon, hidden safely in a mountain cave for centuries. Match wits with evil as the Christians fight to keep the Faith alive!
