Product Description

The Martyr's Mirror is read in every Anabaptist household, an integral part of the history of a strong and resiliant people. Relating the story of the "lost plates" of Martyr's Mirror illustrator Jan Luyken, as well as adapted versions of the stories they accompanied, this well-crafted book weaves together the stories of the martyrs with the story of how their stories were preserved and passed on to new generations of Amish and Mennonite children even today. 96 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

    
     Some four centuries ago, thousands of Christians died because they refused to join the state church in medieval Europe. This book tells the courageous stories of these people of faith.

     
     Some four centuries ago, thousands of Christians died because they dared to refuse to join the state church in medieval Europe. Their reading of the Holy Bible and their consciences led them to believe that church membership should be a voluntary, adult decision. These believers died public, tortured deaths as martyrs. Many modern-day Christians claim these persons of courage as their spiritual ancestors. In the late 1600s, many of those scenes were etched on copper plates, some of which, still exist. Mirror of the Martyrs reproduces 30 of those etchings and tells the courageous stories of these people of faith.
