Two brothers present an offering to the Lord. One is a “keeper of sheep,” the other a “worker of the ground.” One of the offerings is acceptable to God; the other is not. This results in one brother rising up against the other and killing him. Within the initial four chapters of the Bible, we witness the first act of martyrdom (or religion persecution): Cain killing Abel (Genesis 4:2-8).

Throughout the Scripture (Old and New Testament), the trials and persecutions of those who chose to live godly lives are revealed. 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 explores suffering and persecution throughout the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Included are observations and studies from nearly 200 Christian scholars, both ancient and modern. Never before has such an intensive study of persecution in the Bible been assembled. No student of the Bible should be without this resource.
