I had lost my copy years ago and wanted another. Just finished reading it, and I can say that it makes me feel so small, standing next to those giants who were so faithful to our Lord and Savior!! They stood firm in their commitment and paved the way for countless souls to hear and obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Read it and be strengthened in your faith!!!
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.
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!"
