Fox's Book of Martyrs is a History of the Lives, Sufferings, and Deaths of the Early Christian and Protestant Martyrs. Here's one editorial about the book: A great Christian classic, this book describes the heroism and martyrdom of countless believers. It has been an unparalleled volume since its 16th-century origin.
From the Back Cover
This is a book which will never die--one of the greatest Christian classics. As interesting as fiction, it is written with both passion and tenderness, telling the dramatic story of some of the most thrilling periods in Christian history. Presented here in the most complete form, it brings to life the days when "a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid," "climbed the steep ascent of heaven, amid peril, toil, and pain."
Can't wait to receive my copy of the book which I ordered on line.
