Luchas, dudas, amenazas. ¿Morir, vivir o sobrevivir?
Roma. Persecución. Cristianos. Al escuchar estas three palabras, pensamos en los mártires y el Coliseo Romano pero esta no es l. a. historia de aquellos que prefirieron morir antes que negar su fe, sino de muchos otros conocidos como “lapsos”.
Lapsi: (los que tropezaron). Palabra latina con que se designó a los primeros cristianos que abjuraron de su fe ante los angeles presión de las autoridades romanas. Siglo three. Cartago, San Cipriano. Cuatro historias se entretejen para mostrarnos diversas reacciones: quien prefirió firmar antes de sufrir, quien padeció martirio por las circunstancias más que por sus convicciones, quien huyó antes de ser apresado, quien vivió atormentado por mártires del pasado. Conozca a dos mujeres y dos hombres. Descubra sus luchas, secretos, dudas y amenazas en 250 A.D. Algunos se identificaran mejor con los lapsos que con los mártires pero hasta los lapsos pudieron renovar su compromiso con Dios.[i][/i]

Not that it mattered; she’d marry the man over her dead body. “Please go, Leod. ” Talia watched Leod dodge through the crowd, leaving her with a dark crimson blush, unable to look at de Monteneau.

A litany of her castle’s inventory, as she forced herself to hold her tongue, to control her growing panic, disbelieving her new THE BRIDE BED 43 guardian’s assurances that anything was well, let alone all of it. Yet de Monteneau seemed far more intelligent than Rufus or any of the others, doubtless aware that sparing the castle would only add to his coffers.
Very well, my lord . . ” Talia raised her chin to the nearly silent mob, marveling again at their easy discipline, wondering what their behavior meant about their leader. Her guardian. She stilled the trembling anger in her chest and cleared her voice. ” As the crowd THE BRIDE BED 41 cheered, she turned to the impossibly tall man standing, ﬁsts against his hips, at her side. ” For now? A marriage threat, to be sure. One that stirred a silky-hot memory of their ﬁrst meeting, the breathless heat of him.
