It is very eye opening to read about the martyrdom of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. It affirms Jesus's word about how the servent will be called from the house of satan even more than He was! It seems like the Roman Catholic Church spent more time murdering Protestants than studying the Word. My prayer is for Catholics to read the Bible for themselves and become true Christians, and realize that the RCC is not trying to teach them salvation, but slavery. Religion and spirituality are not the same thing. May God reveal Himself to our Catholic brothers! (and may we not need to print more and bigger volumes of this book!)

A common misconception today is that Catholics are Christians. This book outlines hundreds of cases to evidence why they are not the same, or even closely related. If you have a friend who is confused about where Catholicism came from or how it developed, get them this book. Aside from law books, I have yet to find a book so conentrated in content and account, even to the point of making one pause after each one. It is a long read to all but the hardest conscience.

I can't say enough about this work. John Foxe, over years of research and compiling history, legend, and the early Church Father's writing, produced a timeless text for the ages. This particular version is uniquely formatted for ease of reading on the Nook platform. Section three gets into martyrs of the 20th century. An absolutely compelling and challenging book that should question your devotion to following the Lord. "During this century alone, more Christians have been killed for their faith than in all the previous centuries combined." Educators - if you were to use this text in the classroom, there is a convenient study guide integrated into the back of the book that you may find useful for your objectives. I highly recommend this book.

This book is a well written piece. This book seperates the Catholic Sect from the christian sect very well. It starts with the death and synompis of the 12 Apostles and goes well into early 18th Century. Well writte nand backed this book has bee na source of history for many years.

I thought that this book was fantastic! It beautifully shows the persecution of early Chrisians, from the time of Jesus of Nazareth to the days of the Catholic Church's terror. With such sories as the lives of Constantine, Ignatious, William Tyndale, and Martin Luther, John Foxe correctly documents their lives. It shows anyone who thinks that Christians have no faith that countless numbers were willing to die for their beliefs. From the Roman persecutions to the Catholic 'heresys' , Foxe describes (according to historical documents) each of the great martyrs deaths. From being thrown to the lions, to being burned at the stake, Foxe accounts every word or action they did while dying. On the run from persecution himself, Foxe knew first-hand what it was like to be persecuted. John Foxe brought many unknown acts of the Romans and Catholic church to light, and thus furthered Christianity in all its true glory.

The historical impact of this book is considerable: it was almost single-handedly responsible for the rise of anti-Catholicism in England. The accounts contained in this book are not intended so much to educate, as to raise the fury of the reader against the Roman Catholic Church. As an account of Protestant Reformation thought, this book is very valuable, but historical scholarship has somewhat improved since 1563, when it was first published. This book is certainly an exciting read, but think critically about it before accepting all its claims at face value.
