By John Foxe
Also available: Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs: 33 A.D. - Today (Faux Leather) for $29.95!
For nearly 2,000 years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. But martyrdom is not a thing of the past; every day the Christian church is persecuted in countries all over the world. The affliction of Christians was actually more prevalent in the 1900s than in all the past centuries combined. You will get a poignant illustration of these recent martyrs in this book. In addition to the age-old stories of Christian heroes, this updated edition of "Foxe’s Book of Martyrs" contains stories of persecution up to 2001.
John Foxe began his memorial of martyrs in 1563. He began with Stephen, the first to die for the cause of Christ, and ended with the most recent martyrs of his day; those killed during the reign of Bloody Mary. Foxe was motivated to write by the fear of forgetting or becoming insensitive to the struggles of the martyrs. He knew that Christians must not overlook the persecution of their brothers and sisters in Christ, for if the Church is not reminded of the cost of following Christ, its very foundations will crumble.
The courage, faith and love of the martyrs will touch your life. This updated version includes reports on modern martyrs of the 20th and 21st centuries and a full-color timeline of selected events and people for historical reference. It has been carefully edited into modern American English for today's reader.
