From the Back Cover
They were men that 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 and the Word of God regardless of the price.The faithfulness of such historical figures as John Huss, Martin Luther, William Tyndale, and so many others has given us our rich Christian heritage. The courage and dedication of these men have inspired us to live for Christ today.
About the Author
John Foxe (1516-1587), born at Boston, Lincolnshire, England, was a devout and scholarly boy. He attended Brasenose College, Oxford and then Magdalen College where he held a fellowship for seven years. While a student, Foxe became known for his scholarly wisdom and piety and could have led a quiet and successful life; becoming aware of certain spiritual truths, however, Foxe embraced Protestantism. In 1545, he resigned his fellowship at the university and become a tutor for the Lucy family of Warwickshire. Shortly thereafter, he married Agnes Randall of Conventry. John Foxe worked for the Reformation, writing tracts and beginning his famous history of the persecutions and martyrdoms in England from John Wycliffe through the early 1500s. When staunch Roman Catholic Queen Mary took the throne in 1553, Foxe and his family fled England for the continent in fear for their lives. There he continued working on his manuscript, which was eventually published in 1563 as The Acts and Monuments of These Latter and Perilous Days. Foxe continued laboring on his work until his death in 1587.

You will not regret a moment of reading this book! It is very thought provoking...wold we stand up for Christ's Name if we were in these situations? If we had to face them, He would give us the grace to go thru it! Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, the life!
