Foxe's Book of Martyrs has been an invaluable addition to the libraries of faithful Christians for almost five centuries. Chronicling the suffering and brutal deaths of those who have sacrificed their lives for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, John Foxe captured the God-given, Spirit-inspired courage of these noble souls. Though sometimes difficult to read because of the inhumane cruelty depicted in its pages, the images which truly endure are the ones which portray the victorious faith, through the grace of God, of these Christian martyrs.
Why should you read this book? The stories within these pages are supremely inspiring accounts of those who gave their lives defending the truth of the Gospel. Much can be learned not only of their fortitude but also of an apostate false church that persecuted them. The powerful witness of these martyred saints will stir your hearts, as it has the true church through the centuries, to be that loyal bride of Christ, strong and pure.
Publisher's Note: Foxe's Book of Martyrs was first published over 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 (ironically, published by an advocacy group for persecuted Christians), 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.
What is most appealing about this version of the Christian classic, is that it is free of the unwarranted gimmicks and lack of discernment by many newer versions that promote unbiblical authors endorsing the work. It is also important to stress the evils of the predominately Roman Catholic persecution of Protestants throughout church history, something not all versions attest to. As such, it is worth considering this version in a market that is being saturated with contemplative spirituality and revised histories.
Foxe's Book of Martrys
Although heartbreaking, I appreciated reading through this must-read book. I would recommend this Lighthouse Trails version of the book because another version I saw contained excerpts from The Message (which I would recommend avoiding).
