I have always enjoyed books on Christian martyrs. I am always encouraged and challenged to consider my own relationship with God and how I would respond if I were in those circumstances. When I found out that a new book on Christian martyrs was out I was exited!
I wanted to love this book and for it to be a new recommendation to others but sadly it is not. I had a hard time enjoying the book due to the writing being dry and the stories seemed to have gaps in them. I was also disappointed with the numerous martyr stories that were missing from this manuscript. Lastly, I was not fond of the strong Anabaptist undertones in the writing.
I did appreciate the time and energy that the author Charles E. Moore put into compiling this book. I believe it is important for Christians to understand the cost of discipleship and I believe that is the reason this book was written.
All the opinions mentioned are mine alone and none of them are reflections of Fly By Promotions.
