Androcles and the Lion

by George Bernard Shaw

This play is a very witty critique, you could say, indictment of Christian belief, using the old story of Androcles and the lion and setting it in the time of Roman persecution of the Christians. I find it extremely funny but Christians who have difficulty accepting questions about their belief may find it disturbing and offensive. It poses difficult questions for believers.
