Foxe's Book of Martyrs is a classic of courage and faith. This volume chronicles the stories of men and women who faced torture and martyrdom rather than deny their faith in God. Beginning with Jesus Christ, Foxe traces the roots of religious persecution through the sixteenth century. He examines the heroic lives of great men and women such as John Hus, John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Anne Askew, Lady Jane Grey, and Martin Luther. This updated and abridged edition makes this Christian classic accessible to the modern reader.
