Foxe’s Book of Martyrs
By John Foxe
Today, Christian persecution is worse than any other time in modern history. It is the global issue of our day.
But it is not new.
Throughout Scripture and world history, we see God’s people enduring violence, war, discrimination, isolation and eventually martyrdom—all because they have chosen to follow the triune God.
For generations, John Foxe’s classic has inspired and opened the eyes of millions of Christians to persecution, both past and present.
Throughout the pages, the 16th century theologian chronicles history to show us how Christ followers willing to lose their lives have built His Church. In this collection, he brings us up close to disciples we know—for example, Peter, Paul, John, Luke, Mark, Barnabas –and introduces us to the stories of numerous Christians you likely haven’t heard. Men and women who lived out their faith to their last breath.
We believe you’ll also be encouraged by these real-life accounts in this book that still lives today. Foxe’s Book of Martyrs is more than a record of persecution… it is a powerful display of the footprints of an omnipotent, omniscient God.
