Summary

Would you suffer persecution, poverty, and prison for Christ? 

Would you endure cruel tortures that take your mind and body to the brink of death and beyond? 

Would you watch your children suffering for their faith and urge them to remain faithful to Christ? 

Would you endure inhuman tortures and "hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering" (Hebrews 10:23)? 

Would you stand boldly and without shame and confess Christ as your Lord, to your own and to your family's peril?

Two thousand years of martyrs.

For nearly 2000 years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs tells their stories. 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 in 1570.

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 stories from A.D. 37 to 1997 in modern English, and includes new historical data that clarifies and harmonizes people, places, and times.

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs is the most up–to–date version of Foxe's book ever published. It is essential listening for the study of Christian persecution in Foxe's day and in ours.

Sadly I have not been able to find another place

Sadly I have not found another place to buy this book in MP3 format - because I won't be sticking around on this bullshit platform needing to pay for monthly and paying for license for books which you can't even easy transfer around to the hardware you have. This is nonsense and utter diabolical and I won't have anything to do with craziness like this. Sadly not been able to find it any other place for download in MP3... I have 3 versions of Foxes Books of Martyr which version with the woman seems the best which is unedited I think. You can get that in MP3 format in another place then audible. So I'm hanging on to audible as I have 2 books I can't get out of the platfrom - but when I'm done - I'm done with the platform overall.

Not what I was expecting.

I was more interested in the original work that this is based on. This author gets carried away with his own beliefs when adding to the original work. There are notable Christian martyrs that should be discussed if extending the original work into the current century. Overall I thought the reader did well, but the authors bias about historical figures turned me off from this book.

So good!

I can honestly say that i have learned that i never knew true faith before reading this book. I truly believe every Christian should read this book at least once in their life. There are moments when it gets difficult to read this book as the stories are very gruesome and sad so i suggest reading this book little by little to not get so overwhelmed. Overall i wish i could give this book over 5 stars because it is that good! You will not only learn of the people who died for their faith but you will also learn so much history of Christianity, which i also found to be super inspiring.

Every true Christian should read!

Many of the atrocities that the early church went through have been long forgotten and many christians these days hail themselves as christians, but I fear these followers would not have the faith and endurance that these steadfast believers had before them. I feel it is a tragedy that many christians do not know what their forefathers of their faith went through just so they could read the word of God and know that they can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I feel this should be necessary reading for every Christian so they will to know what these men and women did for their faith and for their future generations. I also believe this book is necessary to help encourage us as well. We see persecution increasing against christians in this day and time and I know that we will once again see christians being martyred for their faith especially in America and the church needs to be prepared for that. At this very moment, I feel is very in adequately prepared to deal with such horrors.

Must Read For Diciples, Narrator kinda monotone

I found it really encouraging although I thought the narrator did not get into the story as much as he could.

Amazing

Very interesting, incredibly enlightening and even more so humbling. Well read. And a truly phenomenal account of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
