Description

Beginning with the story of Stephen from the book of Acts, considered the first Christian martyr, the drama builds to the passion of the early Church's persecution under the Roman Empire. The hardy and radical faith of those first believers spawned medieval missionary movements that spread the gospel across Europe and into England, Scotland, and Ireland.

As the story continues, it places a significant emphasis on the sufferings of the early Protestants during the Reformation. As a vicar in the Church of England, author John Foxe strongly identified with the Protestant sects throughout Europe, and his loyalty to their cause comes through in his descriptions of many early clashes between Catholic and Protestant believers.

Listeners are given an opportunity to experience the storytelling that incited several wars between Catholic and Protestant forces. The political and personal passion of the Reformation continues with the stories of the French Protestants during and after the French Revolution.

Exactly what it says, good narration, descriptive
Know what you’re getting. It is what it proclaims to be. A brief but descriptive account of nearly every Christian martyr in history. It is a lot book and sometimes gets taxing because it describes murder after murder in as much detail as you can imagine. However long it may be, it serves a very noteworthy need in the church today. It got monotonous at times, the narration is excellent, but the topic is the same throughout the book, the death of Christians in detail. So the monotony is of no fault of the narration or the author, the book and narrator did excellent. But the topic itself can be taxing on the soul. Would be a very good hardcopy book to own so you can highlight and pull out the stories needed to retell.
