Editorial Reviews

Review

When one recollects that until the appearance of the the common people had almost no other reading matter except the Bible and Fox's Book of Martyrs, we can understand the deep impression that this book produced

- James Miller Dodds, English Prose.

From the Back Cover

This is a book that will never die--one of the great Christian classics. Written with passion and tenderness, it tells the dramatic, true stories of men, women, and children who, in the face of indescribable persecution, gave their lives for the sake of Christ. Covering the broad sweep of church history from the early church to the beginning of American foreign missions in the early 1800s, Fox's Book of Martyrs continues to inspire and strengthen countless Christians with a vision of faith that, both in life and in death, commits itself utterly to the Lord of Life. Presented here in its most complete form, this book brings to life days when 'a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid . . . climbed the steep ascent of heaven amid peril, toil, and pain.' --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This book is the same as my old original one from 1930 or 1940. I was happy to find it now because the available paperback versions I have seen are very different. Amazon.com is my favorite place to shop because I always find what I am looking for and at a good price also.

The Bible states that our LORD is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It stands to reason that if He remains unchanging, then the faith He bestows on believers is the same as that of the early Christians.

What was most educational and humbly to me as I read this work is that the early Christians did not attempt to pass laws that would make their society more comfortable for them, but gladly shared in the suffering of Christ, their only concern being to share His Gospel. Jesus did not command us to make life comfortable for ourselves, but to preach His Gospel in season and out of season. If you, as I have, find that difficult, this book, coupled with Scripture, will open your eyes to the need and give your heart courage and embolden your faith.

I am niether Catholic or Protestant as in my own experience I have been persecuted myself by both "Christian" movements for what I chose to believe.
I found Fox's book facinating not because it upheld one set of dogma against another but because there are some quite sustainable facts. I decided to examine one entry in great detail, because I happen to live 2 minutes away from where the martyrdom is said to have taken place.(Joan Waste who was burned at the stake in Derby)
What makes this account different to most others is because she was only 22 and blind and made her stand against Catholic teaching of "Transubstantiation" based on what she had had read to her from the Bible itself. Her story is substatiated from other local sources and interlocks with known local history.
Truly a fine example ,( not of upholding protestantisim ) but of upholding true Bible doctrine.

This book is interesting with so much History of the early Church, except the atrocities that were commited are hard for me to read about, it literally turns my stomach. The terrible things that were done to the Christians were unbelievably sadistic. What a faith builder it is though to read about how commited those people were to their belief in Christ.

This is a very hard read but it allows us to see just how God has provided for us even during un imaginable trauma. It also allows us to see how the Holy Spirit can provide Gods complete peace when all is at a lost.

Those of us who trust in Christ tend to forget how many before us gave their very lives for the joy that was before them with our Savior. We hear of some of the more well-known such as Wyckliffe, Huss, Knox, Luther, Zwingli; however, many humble men, women and even children willingly gave their lives for the sure promises of God in His Word. It is hard to read of the unbelievably terrible methods devised to torture, maim and kill them but we need to realize that the days ahead may present us with similar opportunities to stand strong in the Spirit of God.

A excellent read.. As a Christain you will appreciate how our Brothers & Sisters sacrificed to the very end for their faith. The question you'll ask is .."Could I go this far for my Savior?"

Though the reviews that follow focus on the sentimental experience of reading Foxe's Acts and Monuments (as it was originally titled), there is also real academic value to familiarizing yourself with this work. Foxe's book was read alongside the Bible in the post-reformation English liturgy. His anthology of Protestant martyrdoms (mainly under Queen Mary)--complete with gory illustrations--helped to define England's national identity during the late sixteenth century. The agonies and ecstasies he narrates go on to influence the kinds of stories major literary figures (like Shakespeare) choose to tell.
A wonderful primary source for those interested in the habits of mind of renaissance / early modern England.
