Excellent book. Very sobering to find out the names of people that were persecuted and suffered for Jesus Christ in the early church. Here in America it is all about comfort but I believe there is coming a time when today's believers will be called upon their faith in Jesus Christ to make that life or death decision.
Foxe's Book of Marytyrs is an excellent source of information about the courage and suffering of early christians in the face of tremendous persecution. It is another timeless Hendrickson Christian Classic book.
Every Christian should read this book and see the cost that was paid for our religious freedom in England, America and other freedom of religon based countries.Ask yourself: Would I be this brave for Jesus?
