A "MUST" READ
on 23 October 2014
Having read Foxe' s Book of Martyrs many years ago, I wanted to purchase a copy for a dear Christian friend whose surname is Fox!
First of all be careful of who you order from as the one you will receive is not necessarily the one you think you ordered!! The edition I have just been sent from World of Books seems to be an abridged, abridged version and does not contain many of the writings I particularly would like my friend to read. Having said that, World of Books have given me a refund but I presume that as I subscribe to Amazon Prime, the total amount I paid was little more. They were pretty fair in that they have let me keep the book so I can't really complain. I have now ordered again from the Book Depository Ltd., in the hope I get what I have ordered.
Having now had a gripe over editions (!), this book is an absolute "must" for Bible believing Christians. I challenge anyone to deny that these people were not given strength from God to endure the atrocities they went through by the vilest of fellow human beings for the sake of their faith. I only hope and pray I would have their courage.
