Abridged Edition by W.G. Berry
Out of stock
2002, Baker, 408 pages.
An easy-reading abridged edition, but with all the key martyr’s lives recounted, including Wycliffe, Tyndale and Hus. Also others especially from the 16th Century. Foxe fled to Europe to escape Queen Mary’s persecution, where he completed his records, so he had first-hand experience.
“Death was not considered enough punishment for the Christians,” wrote John Foxe, “who were subjected to the cruelest treatment possible. Nevertheless, the church continued to grow, deeply rooted in the doctrine of the apostles and watered with the blood of the saints.” This classic book recounts the chilling, yet ultimately inspiring, deaths of early Christian martyrs-from the times of the apostles through the sixteenth century. This edition of Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, originally published in 1563, is abridged and modernized for ease of reading. A book every Christian should read, it’s available in a handsome binding.
