Classic graphic accounts of more than 4,000 Christians who endured suffering, torture, and a martyr’s death as a result of their simple faith within the gospel of Christ. Includes more than 50 finely detailed etchings by noted Dutch artist Jan Luyken. Songs, letters, prayers, and confessions appear with the stories of many defenseless Christians who were in a position to like their enemies and return good for evil.
This gigantic book calls believers to follow Jesus in all areas of life, even unto death. In some way, true Christian commitment demands supreme discipleship and steadfast adherence to the teachings modeled by Jesus and his apostles.
Written and published in 1659 by a Dutch Mennonite, Thieleman J. van Braght, to improve the faith of his fellow believers, and translated into German in 1748 on the time of the French and Indian War for a similar reason. In 1886 Martyrs Mirror was once translated into English to challenge generations of Christians in North The us.
