Publisher's Summary

Originally published in the 16th century, this is the classic history of the lives, sufferings, and deaths of the early Christian martyrs. As interesting as fiction, it is written with both passion and tenderness, telling the dramatic story of some of the most thrilling periods in Christian history. Foxe brings to life the days when "a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid, climbed the steep ascent of heaven, amid peril, toil, and pain."

After The Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our time it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification.

    "Truely a Great Book"

    "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" Tells of the lives and often times the deaths of men, women and children persecuted during the Reformation. This book tells the story of Christians eagerly willing to give their all not to forsake Christ- the one who redeemed them.

    Today in the news we often hear about the "bravery" of those in our modern society (often politicians) who claim to "speak truth to power". This "bravery" is done at no risk to themselves or anyone else. Contrast this modern bravery to "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" where we learn of the lives of those in the 1600's who really did speak truth to power.
    Through these martyrs efforts the world changed in a radical way.

    I believe "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" communicates the the faith, passion and love of God of these Christians in a profound way. "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" is truely a great book.

    This edition has been edited for the modern ear.

    "Bad Recording"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The recording is bad, many times you will hear clicks and stutters in the reading.
