They were people who triumphantly donned the armour 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. In 1563, John Foxe began a memorial of martyrs starting with Stephen, the first to die for the cause of Christ, and ending with the most recent martyrs of his day; those killed during Bloody Mary's reign.
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!
