Item Description...
Overview
Beginning with the story of Stephen from the book of Acts, considered the first Christian martyr, the drama builds to the passion of the early Church's persecution under the Roman Empire. The hardy and radical faith of those first believers spawned medieval missionary movements that spread the gospel across Europe and into England, Scotland, and Ireland. As the story continues, it places a significant emphasis on the sufferings of the early Protestants during the Reformation. As a vicar in the Church of England, author John Foxe strongly identified with the Protestant sects throughout Europe, and his loyalty to their cause comes through in his descriptions of many early clashes between Catholic and Protestant believers. Listeners are given an opportunity to experience the storytelling that incited several wars between Catholic and Protestant forces. The political and personal passion of the Reformation continues with the stories of the French Protestants during and after the French Revolution.

Publishers Description
Nadia May's poignant narration of the classic Book of Martyrs engages the hearts of modern Christians. This compelling and heart-wrenching story details the courage and faith of men and women who found victory by following Christ even unto death. For many generations of Western Christians, this book was the only devotional and evangelical text available, other than the Bible. It inspired evangelism, fueled church growth, and cemented the determination of many to make real-life sacrifices for their faith. Beginning with the story of Stephen from the book of Acts, considered the first Christian martyr, the drama builds to the passion of the early Church's persecution under the Roman Empire. The hardy and radical faith of those first believers spawned medieval missionary movements that spread the gospel across Europe and into England, Scotland, and Ireland. As the story continues, it places a significant emphasis on the sufferings of the early Protestants during the Reformation. As a vicar in the Church of England, author John Foxe strongly identified with the Protestant sects throughout Europe, and his loyalty to their cause comes through in his descriptions of many early clashes between Catholic and Protestant believers. Listeners are given an opportunity to experience the storytelling that incited several wars between Catholic and Protestant forces. The political and personal passion of the Reformation continues with the stories of the French Protestants during and after the French Revolution. In addition to bearing witness to martyrs who would otherwise remain anonymous, this book gives listeners a fascinating historical perspective on the sufferings of John Bunyan (author ofPilgrim's Progress), John Wesley, and the Quakers. Appended chapters describe the privation and struggles of early American missionaries like Adoniram Judson. American Christians are shocked and inspired by these tales of fellow believers throughout history who have paid the ultimate price for their faith. Foxe's Book of Martyrs has jump-started church growth and personal faithfulness for centuries. William Byron Forbush's edition of this classic retains this power and the historical feel of the language while making the text accessible to modern listeners.

Humbling  Apr 16, 2010
Amazing book. If this doesn't strengthen your faith in God, I don't know what will. I don't know how anybody could dismiss all the sacrifices that those people made: either they were all delusional, or there really is a God, and His eternal rewards are worth sacrificing everything in this life for, if necessary.
 
Fox's Book of Martyrs  Feb 23, 2010

Being able to go to different parts of the book convinced me to buy this particular one. The book was as it was reviewed on your site and the time of arrival was prompt, while the condition was excellent.
 
enlightening  Feb 17, 2010
This book is hard to read, because of all the violence in it. Mystery Babylon is a Mystery no more.......I long for that "one Hour" for what she has done to believers.
 
Not What It Pretends To Be  Nov 27, 2009
This book is not what it pretends to be. I expected an objective and historic account of Christian martyrs over the centuries. While it starts out that way - maybe that the piece actually written by Foxe - but it quickly devolves into the alleged atrocities committed by the Catholic Church after the initial Christian conversion of Europe. While there is no doubt that the Catholic Church committed its share of atrocities in the name of Jesus and should be rightly condemned, the book ultimately lacks balance. For example, the book covers more than 50 individual "persecutions" during the reign of the Catholic Queen Mary of England. Yet, there is almost no mention of the martyrdom of the well-known Saint Thomas More at the hands of King Henry VIII. This book is little more than a rant in the name of John Foxe. I would recommend trying something else.
 
disappointed  Nov 27, 2009
I was very disappointed. The editing for the book was horrible. It was hard to try and read, just because of this!
