For nearly two–thousand years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Foxe’s Book of Martyrs tells their stories of heroic courage and overcoming faith. Stories of love of God and Christ. Stories of the amazing grace of God that enabled men, women, and children to endure persecutions and often horrible deaths.
Foxe’s last revision of his Book of Martyrs was in 1570. In the 18th century, others added to his book. But Christians have continued to be persecuted and martyred every year since then. More Christians were martyred in this century alone than in all the past centuries combined. The new Foxe’s Book of Martyrs tells their inspirational stories from A.D. 37 to 1997 in modern English, and includes new historical data that clarifies and harmonizes people, places, and times.
