“This is a book which will never die—one of the greatest Christian classics. As interesting as fiction, it is written with both passion and tenderness, telling the dramatic story of some of the most thrilling periods in Christian history. Presented here in its most complete form, it brings to life the days when ‘a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid…climbed the steep ascent of heaven, amid peril, toil, and pain.’ “After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our time it is still a living force. More than a record of persecution, it is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, and a source of edification.”—James Miller Dodds, English Prose This collection includes treatises on the following: 1. The Persecution of the Early Christians 2. Constantine the Great 3. John Wickliff 4. Sir John Oldcaste, Lord Cobham 5. John Huss 6. William Tyndale 7. Martin Luther 8. John Hooper 9. Rowland Taylor 10. The Martyrs of Scotland 11. Hugh Latimer 12. Bishop Ridley 13. The Trial, Condemnation, and Martyrdom of Ridley and Latimer 14. The Fires of Smithfield 15. Thomas Cranmer 16. Anecdotes and Sayings of Other Martyrs

Author Bio: John Foxe

John Foxe (1517–1587), the martyrologist, was born in England and was educated at Oxford, where he became a fellow of Magdalen College but resigned his fellowship in 1545, being unwilling to conform to the statutes in religious matters. In 1554 he retired to the Continent and issued at Strasburg his Commentarii, the earliest draft of his Actes and Monuments, now popularly known as Foxe’s Book of Martyrs.
