Journey through the ruins of Pompeii and discover what they reveal about Roman city life during the first century AD, when the New Testament was being written.
Once a vibrant Roman city, Pompeii was suddenly buried in the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, AD 79. For 1,500 years the city sat untouched under tons of ash and pumice, extraordinarily well-preserved. Ancient Voices brings to life the wonders of this legendary city, and retells the story of its abrupt destruction. Through her colorful presentation, Ann Sloane recreates this society during its first-century zenith. Join Sloane as she surveys the ruins and their history, sharing insights about the pulse of this Roman city before it dramatically flatlined.

Ann Sloane has given us a brilliant account of the destruction of Pompeii, Herculaneum and other places near to Vesuvius. We are taken back to Roman Cities in the first century AD to a time when the New Testament was being written, and through the pages of this book you can walk through ancient streets, alive with people, noise and many different odors, some more exotic than others. Just like Sodom and Gomorrah of the Old Testament, you can appreciate something of the awful nature of destruction as it unfolded, and learn many powerful and searching lessons so relevant for life in the twenty-first century.
