About the Book

Tertullian was a Christian writer who lived in the Roman province of Africa at the end of the second century and beginning of the third century AD.  He wrote his Apology or “Defense of the Christian Faith” during the joint rule of the Roman emperor Septimius Severus with his imperial peer Caracalla (around 200 AD).  Tertullian’s work presents a classic defense of Christians and their faith in the face of Roman persecution.  

This edition in the St. Polycarp Church Fathers Series presents Tertullian's Apology with notes and commentary by Rev. Aaron Simms.
