Publisher's Summary

Glory to God for the men of old who endured the persecutions of this world with joy and faith. Much can be learned from those who have looked death in the face and yet remained true to the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Polycarp was such a man who learned from the great apostle John. Even under the threat of death, he remained true to his beloved bridegroom, Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, amen!

Even today, some 2000 years later, we have his own words and are able to learn from his wisdom. May you be blessed as you listen to this book. Amen.

    "Polycarp and His Martyrdom Review"
    What made the experience of listening to Polycarp's Letter to the Philippians & His Martyrdom the most enjoyable?

    Polycarp's letter was so full and rich in biblical teachings on the atonement, the gospel, and the natural yet commanded response of God's elect to these powerful truths. And despite some unsound statements in the account of his martyrdom, I can safely say that it is always encouraging and powerful to hear accounts of faithful brothers and sisters in the Lord willing to spend and be spent, even unto death for their Lord and ours, and in His glorious example!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Polycarp's Letter to the Philippians & His Martyrdom?

    My favorite parts were the many elements of sound teaching and exhortation. Polycarp reminded me so much of the pastor of the church I currently attend, and of many of my favorite theologians, like Calvin and Edwards.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved this quote most of all:

    "If we please Him in this present world we shall receive also the future world, seeing as He has promised to us that He will raise us again from the dead, and that if we live worthy of Him we shall also reign together with Him, provided only we believe."

    What a powerful statement. Not only is it gospel centered ("provided only we believe"), but centered on the gospel it gives a powerful statement of the reward of the faithful!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wouldn't say I had an "extreme reaction", but simply that I appreciated the book greatly.
