Product Description

In 1563, John Foxe began a memorial of martyrs starting with Stephen, the first to die for the cause of Christ, and ending with the most recent martyrs of his day; those killed during Bloody Mary's reign. He knew that dangers lay in forgetting the martyrs--in being insensitive to their struggles. Martyrdom is not a thing of the past; every day the Christian church is persecuted in countries all over the world. More Christians were afflicted in the twentieth century then all the past centuries combined. If the Church is not reminded of the cost to follow Christ, she will die. Be vulnerable to the cries of the martyrs. Let their courage, their faith, their love--touch your life. This updated version includes reports on modern martyrs of the 20th and 21st century, a full color timeline of selected events and people for historical reference, and has been carefully edited into Modern American English for today's reader.

    This book was of a great inspiration to my faith in my relationship with Christ. Truly, it will convict you to radically live for him, and die for him. I also learned a lot of early Christian history that I did not know about prior to reading the book and it also helped me to pray for my brothers and sisters around the world who are being persecuted in other countries unlike ever before.

    This book is being used in our Bible School as we study Church History and is a valuable resource.

    Very interesting. I've been reading it to the kids everyday. It has been an eye opener for us all. Note: parents have to decide if the content is appropriate for their kids. Nothing is sugar coated. It is, after all, about martyrs and their persecutions.

    I've known about this comprehensive volume for many years, but for some reason never had it in my study library. But, I decided to invest in a copy to be a companion guide to a study of Revelation that I am teaching. I'm glad I found the "New" version! Not only does it include Foxe's orginal work, but in includes examples from present day as well. This guide is readable and gives an accurate picture of just what persecution is "out there" that we Americans have absolutely no comprehension of unless one has served in these places and experienced the persecution first-hand, or who have loved ones who have gone through the fire. It is an amazing resource to have. My only regret is that I waited so long to add it to my personal library! A must have for anyone serious about "living their faith out loud!"

    I read this book through before I even read my textbook for church history. There are so many accounts of people dying for their faith that as the book notes, not all of them were included. This book will challenge anyone to get out of themselves and start or press on in their spiritual growth. In our church history class, we were reminded of what these people sacrificed and the costs that it resulted in, all because they believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and not in "the church" or some religion.
