This is a very important book to read, as it is about the history of early Christian persecution!This persecution, of course, is still continuing around the world even today.
Foxe has written an excellent book detailing the sacrifices (often with their lives) followers of Jesus Christ have paid.
While Foxe mentions well-known sufferers and martyrs in Christian circles such as the Apostles, Wycliffe, Luther, Latimer, and others, he also mentions less well-known figures. While some names are less known, their sacrifices were just as real and have not been forgotten.
Read and be challenged to not take for granted the freedom to be a Christian! Today, fellow Christians are being martyred just like in Foxe's times.
Classic accounts of some of some early Christian martyrs.
A "must" read about Christian martyrdom. Much of it at the hands of Catholic Europe during the Reformation era, some Roman persecution of the early centuries also. A serious look at the cost of being a true Christian in the face of a hostile world. Various stories of different people in many eras.
