Overview

By Their Blood: Christian Martyrs from the Twentieth Century and Beyond by James Hefley, Marti Hefley

Their amazing stories are told in By Their Blood, a modern continuation of the classic Foxe's Book of Martyrs. Some stories are well known: John and Betty Stam were beheaded by an antiforeign mob: Jim Elliot and four others were slain by Auca Indians in Ecuador. But countless other stories are less known, though equally dramatic and soul stirring. From accounts of torture behind the Iron Curtain to massacres in sub-Saharan Africa, here is a montage of those who have given their lives for the cause of Christ in the last century. This new edition of the Gold Medallion winner is thoroughly updated to include the stories of Christian martyrs up to the present day.
