Yes...sweep the atheists away...

One of my favorite narratives from the early church is the Martyrdom of Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna. Perhaps this is because I was first acquainted with the story while living in Smyrna, today called Izmir. One of my friends and co-laborers, Will Nielson, is currently working on a translation and notes of this narrative and posting his efforts on his blog. Each entry is short, but well done. Check it out and follow along as the story unfolds. It's a story of great conviction and highly inspiring. May we all face persecution of every kind with the fortitude of Polycarp to the glory of God.
