What would you die for?

That's the question suddenly thrust upon a small band of women and children in Bosnia at the close of World War II. When a group of bitter soldiers stumble upon their peaceful village, they suddenly face an insidious evil . . . and the ultimate test.

It is then, in the midst of chaos and pain that the Martyr's Song is first heard. It is then that the window into heaven first opens. It is then that love and beauty are shown in breathtaking reality.

You have in your hands the story and the song that changed . . . everything.

The Martyr's Song was a book of wonder. It taught me lessons in beauty and peace. The elements that touched me the most in this book was the use of Imagery. This was also my favorite part of the book I loved it for the same reason I wrote it. It shows us what the characters are seeing letting everything jump off the page and into our world. My least favorite part of this book on the other hand was how the Minister was hung on the cross, How could you imitate that the pain and torture actually led to a few nightmares.. But I would recommend this book to all I give it a stamp of approval beyond all. God bless Ted Dekker

I enjoy reading Christian fiction but often time get frustrated with the 'trite' endings. You know the stories, fictional character encounters some life altering/changing situation, and then by the end of the book after a few more sub plots everything works out honky-dory, kind of like the Brady Bunch! The Martyr's Song is a story within a story. A young girl who is teased because she is not the most attractive girl meets an elderly woman who tells her she can help her discover her real beauty. She visits the elderly lady who shares a horrific and tragic story of an occurance at a village in Europe. The story is heart-wrenching and tragic, and it begs all us Christians to wonder if we would do the same thing if we were in the same horrific situation as those villagers? The book is thought provoking, tragic, but ultimately beautiful!

I was amazed at the beauty of this story! The innocence of a child being so willing to give her life for the Lord... It takes my breath away. I was deeply impacted by The Martyers Song.

Note: Possible Spoiler Alert I am a HUGE Ted Dekker fan, and have read dozens of books from him. This was, very easily, the worst. To begin with, it's only 100 pages, 80 of which are actually the story. I read through it in about 30 minutes. The story itself is just bizarre. It begins with an old woman named Eve, and a young, insecure girl names Marci. When Eve walks up to Marci and tells her that she is ugly, and that Eve can take her to her store and make her beautiful, Marci is angry and doubtful, but she shows up anyway. Then, Eve takes out a book, and begins reading to her about a small Serbian village. One day, 5 soldiers showed up to this village, and one of them brutalized the people-namely the priest, a young girl, Nadia, and the women. Because the villagers would not renounce Christ, the soldier killed Nadia and the priest, but at the end, the people stood up against him, and one of the soldiers escaped to tell the story of the other soldier's evil to the rest of the world. It turns out that Eve was Nadia's mother, and that Marci has a "connection" with Nadia through the story, and becomes beautiful through Christ. The characters were extremely underdeveloped, and even the Christian message was really fuzzy. I love Christian fiction, but this just didn't live up. To me, it was definitly not worth the $10, or the 30min. I will continue to read Ted Dekker, but I ddon't reccomend this particular book to you. Instead try White, Black, Red, Green, Obsessed, Three, Blink of an Eye, or one of Dekker's many other, much better choices.

To me, Martyr's Song felt like a replay of a true story from the pages of Jesus Freaks or Fox's book of Martyrs, only with much more detail. Dekker does an excellent job of sucking you into the story, though I think he could have just used the Bosnia story by itself and accomplished even more (drop the outer story and go for the meat.) At any rate, this story made me address some questions about how far I would go if needed, and I felt inspired to reach for a new level in my faith. In that respect this story held real value, and for that, I'm thankful. It's definitely not the same old...same old...But, in my opinion, it was a bit too short. I would have liked to have read more about the torturers' responses to the priest's death and how it had changed them, especially the writer of the novel Eve had read, rather than just hearing it from her. But that's just me.
