The Pilgrim Road: Insights from Early Christians (David Bercot)

$9.95 $8.50

During the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. (100-300), the Christian faith was often an illegal religion, persecuted throughout much of the civilized world. In many ways, our God used this as a blessing: because such a situation culled out superficial “professors” and only those who were willing to live sacrificially for Christ were shown to be Christians. It produced thousands of fervent souls who loved God more than anything else, who scorned the pains of persecution and the alluring pleasures of the world.

The passionate Christianity of the men and women of those early centuries has much to teach us today. They have left us a rich legacy of ancient writings that provide keen insights on how to walk on the pilgrim road – the narrow way of which Jesus spoke. This book is a unique collection of the best insights, reflections, exhortations, and counsels of those early Christians. 25 chapters consisting of their writings about separation from the world, loving your enemies, obedience, suffering, prosperity, compassion, and much more.

About the Author

n 1985, David Bercot was a successful attorney, practicing title law Texas. The thought of ever becoming an author was the farthest thing from his mind. Nevertheless, despite being a career lawyer, Bercot’s passion in life was Christ–not law.

Early in his Christian life, Bercot began to read the writings of the early Christians who lived within a century or two after the apostles.   Since then, Bercot has written a number of books pertaining to early Christianity and committed Christian discipleship. He purposefully writes in a reader-friendly, conversational style, eschewing a more academic approach.

Bercot and his wife Deborah have three children and make their home in the Amberson Valley in Pennsylvania.
