Publisher's Description

"Have you grace to be a martyr?" D.L. Moody was once asked.

"No," he replied, "I have not. But if God wanted me to be one, he would give me a martyr's grace."

They came from around the world. Administrators, teachers, doctors and nurses, church planters and pilots. Regular people in the prime of life.

In A Martyr’s Grace, Marvin Newell tells the individual stories of these faithful men and women who made a difference in the places they served. He also describes—in many cases for the very first time—how Jesus called them home. Their legacies live on in the rainforests, villages, churches, and cities where they died.

What is it that compels ordinary people to sacrifice their lives in this way? Only Christ. They didn’t go expecting to die. But they went—having already given their lives.

    I love this book! What an awesome idea, to honor those who have given their all to Christ. Every school that trains missionaries to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ should have such a record of its alumni.

    From the unassuming cover (front and back) to the divisions by continent, to the beautiful illustrations, to the biographical information, to the narrative, to the list of sources, this book is clear in its objective and consistent in its message.

    Every one of the twenty-one alumni in this book were completely trusting God with the details as they sought to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who had never heard.

    I love the title, and the fact that it is a phrase connected with D.L. Moody. I have no personal ties to Moody Bible Institute. This book is a great tribute to a great institution used by God to prepare scores of men and women to serve Him.

    It is never easy to read of the untimely deaths, especially of young people who are totally committed to serving God. Something about the way this book is written makes it difficult to put down. It creates a hunger to know more. I learned so much from each of the martyrs, and was encouraged by them to pursue a deeper level of commitment in my walk with the Lord.

    I highly recommend this book to all readers.

    My rating: 5 stars

    I received my copy of A Martyr's Grace from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    This book is a compilation of 21 brief biographies of Moody Bible Institute Alumni who were killed for their faith while on the mission field in various parts of the world. These inspiring stories are about ordinary men and women who chose to go to different cultures to minister to the people there not realizing that they were going to be giving the ultimate sacrifice.

    It is a good reminder to remember and honor those who sacrificed their lives in service to Christ and their fellow man. It also challenges Christians to examine their own lives to see if they would be willing to do the same.

    I received this book from Moody Publishing for this review.
