Publisher's Summary

Would you suffer persecution, poverty, and prison for Christ? 

Would you endure cruel tortures that take your mind and body to the brink of death and beyond? 

Would you watch your children suffering for their faith and urge them to remain faithful to Christ? 

Would you endure inhuman tortures and "hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering" (Hebrews 10:23)? 

Would you stand boldly and without shame and confess Christ as your Lord, to your own and to your family's peril?

Two thousand years of martyrs.

For nearly 2000 years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs tells their stories. Stories of heroic courage and overcoming faith. Stories of love of God and Christ. Stories of the amazing grace of God that enabled men, women, and children to endure persecutions and often horrible deaths.

Foxe's last revision in 1570.

Foxe's last revision of his Book of Martyrs was in 1570. In the 18th century others added to his book. But Christians have continued to be persecuted and martyred every year since then. More Christians were martyred in this century alone than in all the past centuries combined. 

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs tells their stories from A.D. 37 to 1997 in modern English, and includes new historical data that clarifies and harmonizes people, places, and times.

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs is the most up–to–date version of Foxe's book ever published. It is essential listening for the study of Christian persecution in Foxe's day and in ours.

So good!

I can honestly say that i have learned that i never knew true faith before reading this book. I truly believe every Christian should read this book at least once in their life.
There are moments when it gets difficult to read this book as the stories are very gruesome and sad so i suggest reading this book little by little to not get so overwhelmed.
Overall i wish i could give this book over 5 stars because it is that good! You will not only learn of the people who died for their faith but you will also learn so much history of Christianity, which i also found to be super inspiring.

Amazing

Very interesting, incredibly enlightening and even more so humbling. Well read. And a truly phenomenal account of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
