If you want to be challenged to live the Christian life in spite of those who would disagree with you, then read these stories of people who died for what they believe in. It will give one a whole new perspective on standing for what you believe in. I have to ask myself if I could be as strong as these people were, and pray that I too would take my stand for Jesus as these people did. It also causes me to pray for those in countries where the gospel is not allowed to be proclaimed freely. Be prepared to be challenged! ( )

I think with a book like this, you can't help but compare yourself to the people in the book. It is part of the purpose of the book. I wonder about myself; whether I would have faith strong enough to die for it. Right now, I don't think I would. So it's interesting to me that all the people in this book have died or lived for there faith. Part of me wants to strive to be like them—living for my faith. Another part is confused.
I think this is a interesting book for most Christians to read because we all want to strive to be more faithful in life. If you are not Christian, I am not sure it will interest you. It might but I think it is a little strong for non-Christians. ( )

Really good to read some stories out of it once in a while. ( )

This basically picks up on Foxe's book of Martyrs and continues the story of the persecuted church in the world up until more recent times. Great, encouraging stories from those who looked forward to a better heavenly city. With the exception of a few accounts, I would highly recommend reading these stories to your children, especially if you are a Christian living in America where we suffer virtually no persecution. Our children need to know how blessed by God they are to live in a land where the Gospel, by and large, goes forth unhindered. ( )
