Description
The history of Christian martyrdom is, in fact, the history of Christianity itself, wrote William Bramley-Moore in an introduction to Foxe\u2019s Book of Martyrs. Today, however, many Christian martyrs are unsung heroes. This collection testifies to their faith and devotion in the face of horrific adversity.The New Encyclopedia of Christian Martyrs is a definitive, comprehensive resource that records Christian martyrdom over the last two thousand years. Contents are arranged chronologically and divided into five parts: Bible martyrs, martyrs under the Roman Empire, martyrs from the fifth to the fifteenth centuries, martyrs from the Reformation era, and martyrs from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. Special feature pages throughout the book explain Christian teaching on martyrdom and persecution, prayers and famous quotations of the martyrs, famous quotations about martyrdom and persecution, and historical details.Pastors, history teachers, librarians, and any Christian who desires to learn about the persecuted Church will find a wealth of information in this one volume.
