    My son ordered this book for a book report in sixth grade. It was quite a bit longer than he thought it was going to be (lol)! He’s not an avid reader himself but likes to be read to; so, I read the book aloud with him. It’s a thought provoking and challenging book for any Christian believer and a good conversation starter for you to use with your kids about their faith. It includes many stories from current times (up to mid 90’s) and many stories from previous centuries – even back to Jesus’ time and many martyrs from the Bible. It’s not a chronological story, so it would be easy to use this book as a nightly bed time- read one or two stories before bed and discuss- book. Each story is on average two or three pages long and as far as I know, all are true events. Throughout the book there are many short scripture passages relating to a specific martyr story. I wouldn’t recommend reading it with younger children unless you are comfortable with them hearing about people being burned at the stake and things like children being executed in front of their parents.Hope this helps you make your decision!

    If you want a great strengthing OR test of your faith this is a must read. As bible believing followers of Christ in America we sometimes forget how lucky we are to worship freely(for now). This book opened my eyes and slaped me in the face on what it means to truly follow Christ. Most take it for granted here in America and i offten ask myself if i would be willing to die for my faith. After reading this i would be truly honored to lay my life down. Most importantly it taught me to love and pray for those that persecute and tourture me. God gave these martyrs the strength to endure the pain as if they didnt feel it and while being put to death or imprisoned they where praying hard for their tourtures that they would come to know Christ, because as soon as they passed they knew they would be with our Lord in Heaven.

    Probably my all-time favorite book outside the Bible. I use it for devotional reading most every night. It has removed the fear of what will happen when “politically correct” America turns completely against true believers and we finally begin to experience the “suffering” the Bible equates with knowing Christ (Philippians 3:10). Only wish it came in a less expensive format so I could buy it by the case it pass it out. Even so, I’ve bought dozens of used ones and given them to jail inmates, who also devour it as I have. I say this as a suggestion for others to do likewise. Become a prison/jail chaplain volunteer!

    As I read the stories of people giving up their lives or enduring unspeakable torture because of their faith in Jesus, it made me ask myself over and over again, “How would I respond to that kind of treatment”? It certainly made me want to love Jesus more and to be more bold in my walk and talk so that people will view me as a “Jesus Freak”. I know for certain that in the US, we have not had to face this kind of persecution for our faith, but there are no guarantees that it will remain that way and those of us who are followers of Jesus may very well be facing these kinds ordeals. The time is now to ask yourself, “Will I die for my belief or will I denie my Lord”?

    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.

    This is one of the most moving books that I have read. It’s so good I bought a copy for my 13 year old so that he can see what people have been through to get where we are today. A definite buy for friends and family also.

  8. Me

    I have bought 4 copies of this book over the past week. One for myself the others for friends/family.This book is an eye-opening, enlightening, thought-provoking, shocking reality of what God’s people will go through to stay true to Him. When you read these stories, I hope you look deep into yourself and figure out how true your relationship is with the Living God.

    The best book for children
    The best book for children, teens and adults to learn of what Christians had to sacrifice. Stories are one page and short, but long enough to take away a message. Bought 2, one for my 10 year old son, and another to give as a gift to his friend.

    I read the first one and can’t get enough of the second one.
