Product Description

From the Back Cover

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, Fox's 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.' --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

if you are interested in Christianity and its adherents this is essential reading, a real eye-opener as to the internal conflicts of the faith that is divided on the fundamentals re Nicean creed and its enforcement, and the hostility of non-beleivers

A excellent little book by John Foxe who records the death of those who defied the
the orthodox Catholic faith for the new Protestantism that had been sweeping Europe and
was now taking hold in England under Queen Mary. Many men died by being burned at the stake
by a Catholic Biship named Bonner. This book will help to widen the understanding of the `Martyrs' who came from
many counties of our land and had their personal faith challenged.

ITS A LITTLE HARD TO READ AS THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE HAS CHANGED QUITE ALOT SINCE THIS WAS WRITTEN. IF YOU READ SLOWLY YOU WILL SOON GET THE HANG OF IT. FANTASTIC BOOK.

An excellent book with the true stories of how our Martyrs meet their deaths. Their belief in Almighty God could never be questioned. It is a must read on our past history.
