Foxe’s Book of Martyrs Gone to Press

Jul 28th, 2010 Posted in new releases, Publishing News | Comments Off on Foxe’s Book of Martyrs Gone to Press

Foxes-Book-of-MartyrsThe Lighthouse Trails special edition of Foxe’s Book of Martyrs has gone to press. Street date will be August 12th. Here is our publisher’s note, which explains why we decided to publish our own edition of this classic.

Publisher’s Note

Foxe’s Book of Martyrs was first published five hundred years ago. Today, there are many editions of this book available. When Lighthouse Trails decided to start offering this book to our readers, we began our search for a suitable edition. Much to our dismay, we discovered that many of the current editions were compromised in one form or another. For example, in one edition by a Christian publisher, front page endorsements included the names of those who promote contemplative spirituality and/or the emerging church. When one realizes that contemplative/emerging spirituality embraces some of the very same beliefs that Foxe’s martyrs opposed to the point of suffering cruel persecution and death, it is most troubling and misleading to see these names in the cover of an edition of Foxe’s Book of Martyrs.

In another edition we reviewed, the book was among a special set of “Christian classics.” We were once again perplexed to see that some of the other books in that series were written by contemplative mystics.

And yet another edition, published by a secular publisher, advertised mystical and occult practices on the back cover.

Finally, after an unsuccessful search, Lighthouse Trails decided to publish our own edition of this truly incredible and unforgettable account.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3: 17

Warren B. Smith is speaking  this weekend at Candlelight Fellowship in Coeur d Alene, Idaho at the 8:30 and 10:30 Sunday morning services on July 25th. His topic: “the Quantum Lie: God is NOT in everything.”

Just back from two weeks of activity in the Pacific NW, Warren and his wife, Joy, were part of a team of believers who passed out 1200 free copies of Bob Ayanian’s latest gospel CD, At the Edge of the World, at the country’s largest New Age Fair, The Oregon Country Fair. Copies of Warren’s book, The Light That was Dark, were also passed out to attendees of the fair. Over the last 15 years, over 6000 copies Warren’s autobiography have been given out at this popular New Age fair.
