Product Description

With millions of copies in print, Foxe's Book of Martyrs has become a classic of magnificent courage and faith. This unparalleled volume chronicles the tragic yet triumphant stories of men and women who faced torture and martyrdom rather than deny their vision of truth and of God. Beginning with Jesus Christ, this exceptional historical record traces the roots of religious persecution through the sixteenth century. It examines the heroic lives of great men and women such as John Hus, John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Anne Askew, Lady Jane Grey, and Martin Luther. John Foxe also knew persecution. Forced to flee from his native England to Europe during Queen Mary's severe persecution of those holding Reformed views, he carefully compiled records of martyred Christians. His writings possess a sense of immediacy and insight into suffering that few "objective" church historians can match. This edition has been streamlined and reorganized by W. Grinton Berry to present work in today's language.

    No matter what the last sentence of the "Product Description" touts, this is hardly "today's language." Some may find it a difficult read, being in period language (16th century); but after a bit of reading, what's written flows wonderfully. If one struggles with the prose in the KJV, this is definitely not for you. There are more modern renderings of Foxe, but the beauty and flavor is lost. It's tantamount to where both beauty and detail are lost through modern translations of the KJV.

    Interesting book, had to stop several times to check definition of some word's used in the 14-16th century, ie. Ague means malaria to our generation. Felt like I was in medieval times.

    Excellent value ... I had been looking for this book a while and was delighted to see it featured in one of the catalogs. An excellent book for anyone interested in Christianity and the Gospels. These people are the reason we have the freedom to worship in our Churches today!

    If you want to learn more about the early Christians and how they stood their ground for the Gospel of Jesus Christ then you must read this book. This book is an excellent read for you if you are studying the Scriptures or if you are a student or just want to increase your knowledge of Christian history.
