Gladiators Arising: Blood-Bought Vs. Blood Sport

Trent Herbert

Paperback 2022-03-08

Publisher Description

History repeats. Gladiators Arising: Blood-Bought vs. Blood Sport examines the resurgence of blood sports in the world today and its infiltration into the church. Historians are calling on people not to be comforted in the false assumption that gladiatorial fights could never happen again. Yet, it is realized that the neo-gladiators of Mixed Martial Arts have already arisen. This book walks through the corridors of time and takes a panoramic historical view of the early church's collision with gladiators and its ultimate victory. The exploding concussion crisis makes this a timely book and the uncomfortable realities need a biblical response. Gladiators Arising demonstrates the early church's success in piercing the darkness with the Light of Christ. It was through loving those created in His image and sharing the Gospel no matter the cost that changed the course of history. The cross today, standing within the weathered Roman Colosseum, beckons us to remember the past, understand the present, and prepare for the future.
