Some have called this book a modern version of Fox’s Book of Martyrs, but it is more than that. It covers the gamete of many of history’s martyred men and women from the Apostle Paul and Stephen in the first century to the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS in 2015. The author shows how today, through modern communication and technology, the entire world is aware of the wide range of persecution that is taking place even in the remote areas of the earth, whereas in the past, only the big events were known. He discusses what evil has done and is doing in the name of God. The wickedness of mankind is scary, but it is what the Scriptures have told us, “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked who can know it.” I recommend this book to all readers who are interested in understanding the hearts of those who have paid and continue to pay the ultimate price of life.
