This is a book that will never die--one of the great Christian classics. Written with passion and tenderness, it tells the dramatic, true stories of men, women, and children who, in the face of indescribable persecution, gave their lives for the sake of Christ. Covering the broad sweep of church history from the early church to the beginning of American foreign missions in the early 1800s, Foxs Book of Martyrs continues to inspire and strengthen countless Christians with a vision of faith that, both in life and in death, commits itself utterly to the Lord of Life. Presented here in its most complete form, this book brings to life days when "a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid . . . climbed the steep ascent of heaven amid peril, toil, and pain."

Dad of 7TxAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Fox's book of WOW!January 8, 2011Dad of 7TxAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Would you really give it all for your Savior? You are left asking yourself this question after reading this powerful book. This book chronicles dozens of stories about the faithful who have made a stand for Jesus. A stand which caost most of them their lives. From men singing praises loud enough to drown out the roar of the fire that was engulfing them to the lady who prayed through her fear as her day of punishment came, this book makes us look deep inside and challenges our faith.
I have heard it said, "don't give this to a new convert, it will scare them!". I say, every Christian should read this. We in America don't know what true persecution is......YET! But we will!
Gut-wrenching, Heart-pounding, inspiring words of many of the martyrs that gave their all to spread God's word and build the kingdom.

We are so blessed to live in the days that we do and should be reminded that if our country continues to slide down the slippery slope it is going, each of us may at some point, as Christians, be faced with a situation of having to either deny our faith or pay the price for our beliefs.
