Foxe's Book of Martyrs $6.95
Author: John Foxe
|For over 400 years, Foxe’s Book of Martyrs has inspired generations of Christians through the stories of men and women who chose to face death rather than recant their faith in Christ. This book provides a fascinating introduction to the lives of the persecuted saints of old, beginning with Stephen and ending during the reign of Queen Mary.|
After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our own time it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification.
They were people who triumphantly donned the armor of God--the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, the sword of God's Word. They faced torture and death in their fight of faith, willing to stand for their beliefs regardless of the price. The obedience and courage of such historical figures as William Tyndale and Martin Luther will create courage in anyone facing the trials of life and is sure to inspire you to live for Christ today. This best-selling classic is a must for every Christian's library!

(1517-1587) Born in Lincolnshire, England. He studied at Oxford and was ordained by Nicholas Ridley in 1550. On Mary’s accession in 1554, Foxe fled to Strasbourg, taking a manuscript designed to be the first part of his history of the reformation. He had it published there and then moved to Basle, where he completed his book and had it published in 1559. Returning to England, Foxe had the first English edition published in 1596. Four editions appeared in his lifetime, profoundly influencing Elizabethan England. Since then it has never been out of print. After a long life of piety and usefulness, Foxe died on April 18, 1587.
