Overview

The object of this work, is to give a brief history of persecution since the first introduction of christianity, till the present time. In doing this, we have commenced with the martyrdom of Stephen, and following the course of events, have brought the History of persecution down to the year 1830. In all ages, we find that a disposition to persecute for opinion's sake, has been manifested by wicked men, whatever may have been their opinions or sentiments on religious subjects. The intolerant jew, and the bigoted pagan, have exhibited no more of a persecuting spirit, than the nominal professor of christianity, and the infidel and the avowed atheist. Indeed, it seems to be an "inherent vice," in unsanctified nature to endeavour by the pressure of physical force, to restrain obnoxious sentiments, and to propagate favourite opinions. It is only when the heart has been renewed and sanctified by divine grace, that men have rightly understood and practised the true principles of toleration. We do not say that none but real christians have adopted correct views respecting civil and religious liberty;--but we affirm that these views owe their origin entirely to christianity and its genuine disciples.

so far it is very infomative no bull crap it really lists the martyrs i only wish it was more religious but it is not; it is written without objective. Factual information is very graphic and without bible passages it is historic and factual a great read for all faiths and non faiths

This book has already helped me understand what is happening to Christians from when Jesus walked the earth to Christians living on earth today. A must read book!

If you have a interest in the early church this is a book worth while reading. It will explain the suffering and persecution of the early church.

Those who find truth to leave a bitter taste in the mouth may not want to read this historical tome, but any honest fellow with an interest in human history, will without a doubt, find this book to be a great addition to their personal library.
