Front Cover
ICAS Press, 2009 - Christian life - 282 pages
Maximilian and his friends are living a double life, posing as royal counsellors for the despotic, pagan governor of Roman Philadelphia (present-day Jordan) while secretly spreading the outlawed religion of Jesus of Nazareth. As their brethren fall victim to torture and murder, their situation becomes more and more dire until they take a daring step that sends shockwaves throughout the whole Roman Empire. Although they are forced to flee, nonetheless, their story lives on as generation after generation carry on their epic battle and an unimaginable miracle changes their world forever. "The Idols Will Fall" is a unique presentation of the miraculous story of these young men referred to both in Christian historical literature and in the Qur'an. This is the story of the Sleepers of the Cave.
