New Foxe's Book of Martyrs
A completely revised edition of the book originally published by John Foxe in 1563 known simply as the Book of Martyrs. It has been carefully edited into modern American English and includes new photographs, a full-color timeline, and an updated index. Starting with Jesus Christ Himself, who Foxe refers to as "the inspiration and source of all martyrdom," and stretching through the years up through the 20th century, this book gives us a view into the lives of those willing to pay the ultimate price for their faith at the hands of unbelievers and those who would persecute fellow Christians for the sake of denominational issues.
This soft-cover series of books from Bridge-Logos is beautifully done. These classic works have been sensitively revised and updated in modern English and include a color timeline on the inside cover, black and white illustrations and a detailed index. They are excellent books for anyone who wants help going deeper in their Christian walk. Some volumes still include a CD of audio excerpts from the book, although the publisher is transitioning to offering audio files on their website, rather than including CDs with books. Please see our website for more up-to-date information on the status of each. ~ Jerry
