Here is a story of Rome’s staggering contrasts — extreme poverty amidst the wildest extravagance, treacherous dungeon life in darkness, and chains amidst the splendors and amusements of luxurious court life.

The Wrestler of Philippi is one of my all-time favorite Lamplighter books. I love how it brings the days of the early Christians to life through the eyes of an Olympian wrestler!”

    Great Read I enjoyed this book! The characters were very believable. I love how the New Testament characters such as Lydia and the Philippian Jailor were brought in and how the life and journeys of Paul were weaved throughout. I feel this will enrich my next reading of the book of Acts to think deeper of the real people these events happened to!

    Literature At Its Finest!! The strength of this book is its masterful weaving of many plot threads, shifting character pursuits and blending them all nicely within the historical framework of many events recorded in the book of Acts. The author does a good job of not whitewashing the pagan atrocities of the day in Rome, neither does she indulge sinful flesh by gratuitously displaying such depravities. I appreciated some of the slower conversion accounts within the tale, as well as the sympathy towards Nero shown by Hector (simply as someone who needs Christ as much as the rest of us). While it wouldn’t have fit her style, I was hoping for a little more dramatic storytelling during the final climatic scene. Other than that, I applaud this book for the twists and turns it takes (especially with Junius). Highly recommended indeed. Take your time with this one–enjoy each page.

    A Good Read I really enjoyed this book! I appreciate that it has some mystery (my favorite), and also teaches lessons that cause you to think.

    Very Good! If you love historical events, high emotion, and happy endings, then this book is for you. But really, I think most people will enjoy this book. Thank you Lamplighter for another great read!

    Highly Recommended This is an amazing book! I read it all in one day! The story is very intriguing- the beginning reminded me of the book Ben-Hur. I love the way it portrays the early Christian church, and how they helped one another. Also, it inspired me to have the same dedication to Christ as past believers and martyrs had! May He find us faithful!
