Truely a Great Book
"Foxe's Book of Martyrs" Tells of the lives and often times the deaths of men, women and children persecuted during the Reformation. This book tells the story of Christians eagerly willing to give their all not to forsake Christ- the one who redeemed them.
Today in the news we often hear about the "bravery" of those in our modern society (often politicians) who claim to "speak truth to power". This "bravery" is done at no risk to themselves or anyone else. Contrast this modern bravery to "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" where we learn of the lives of those in the 1600's who really did speak truth to power.
Through these martyrs efforts the world changed in a radical way.
I believe "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" communicates the the faith, passion and love of God of these Christians in a profound way. "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" is truely a great book.
This edition has been edited for the modern ear.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The recording is bad, many times you will hear clicks and stutters in the reading.
