She had counted the cost, now the decision remained.

In the second century A.D., seventeen-year-old Laurentia finds herself living in Smyrna during a fearful era for followers of Christ. Wanting to live a happy and safe life, she resists her family's urgings to choose the narrow road of Christianity, looking instead for another push path to follow.

Join Laurentia during the last days of the early church leader, Polycarp, as she watches faith being worked out and decides what her eternal inheritance will be.

"And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich)... Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer... I will give thee a crown of life."

Polycarp paused and glanced up. "Some of these prophecies are being fulfilled already, but I believe conditions will get worse."

Laurentia shuddered. Prison? Tribulation? Death? She wished she could escape this discussion. But her grandfather was going on.

"I know that becoming a Christian may sound fearful; I'm not going to deny that it does bring danger. But there's so much more to it than that."

He smoothed the parchment gently with one hand. When he looked up, tears stood in his eyes. "Rich in Christ is what we are. The world has nothing to offer. I hope you will discover that for yourselves."

Laurentia stared into the fire, the urge to weep strong within her. She was so tired of everything—the fear, the unrest, and the dread that had haunted her for so many months.
