Abstract:

Nero's insanity threatens the woman of one man's dreams and all of Roman Christianity. As princess of a now vanquished kingdom, the lovely Lygia lives a hostage in first-century Rome. As an arrogant nobleman accustomed to getting his way, Vinicius decides he will have this strikingly beautiful young woman. But the princess's deep Christian faith rattles the pagan Vinicius -- who first tries to take her by force, then determines to woo her to himself. As Vinicius pursues Lygia, her behavior and that of Rome's entire Christian community -- their love, compassion, and forgiveness -- begin to stir his cold, selfish heart. Soon, Emperor Nero steps up his persecution of the Christians, inventing hideous ways of eliminating these people who dare to reject his claims of deity. When the emperor's murderous plans ensnare Lygia, Vinicius must declare his allegiance -- to Nero, or to the one true God. Rich in historical detail, Quo Vadis is a deeply moving story of Christian faith amidst one of the darkest times in history. This classic novel, presented in unabridged form, will challenge you to live in the light of God's truth regardless of your circumstances. - (Summary from a c. 2000 edition of this title)
