The stories of 15 Anabaptist martyrs are retold by Dave and Neta Jackson from Martyrs Mirror. These stories, including those of Michael Sattler, Elizabeth Dirks, and Dirk Willems, reflect a cross section of the thousands of men and women who lost their lives because of their faith during the 16th century. The storytelling perspective varies: sometimes from the martyr's point of view or that of a friend or relative, sometimes that of a child or bystander or even the executioner or betrayer. The maryrs come alive through these stories and their witness for Christ inspires us. Discussion questions focus on present day meaning making this a valuable tool for study groups.
