One of my favorites

It came quick and in amazing condition

This will make you soul search

I cried several times reading this book because I would imagine, “What if this were me? Would I be so brave?”. It made me dig down deep in my soul and ask if I could still stand strong in such persecution. If not, am I truly who I say I am?

Amazing Book

The book itself is awesome. I previously owned a copy and was repurchasing it after losing the book in a move. However, the reason for the loss of a star is due to not receiving the CD with my purchase.


Wow!! This is definitely one of the best books that I have ever read. I recommend it for everyone. It will help Christians strengthen their faith and give non Christians an idea of what Christianity is all about. The book tells the stories of about 100 different people who were persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. It is really challenging to those of us who live in countries where we have the freedom to speak openly about Jesus Christ. It is not uncommon for Christians in other parts of the world to be beaten, tortured, or even killed because they believe in Jesus Christ. This book really challenged me to get outside of my comfort zone and talk to my friends and neighbors about Christ. It was also a great help because I no longer feel alone when I get ridculed or rejected because I am sharing my faith with people.

Totally awesome Book

This book was a definate eye-opener and caused me to step back and look at how I was doing in my relationship with Christ. Anyone considering buying this book should wait no longer!

Wake Up America!

I strongly believe that one reason God is using this book is to open the eyes of Christians in America (like myself) and in other free countries: we probably have not experienced being tortured (or killed) for our faith like those who's stories are in this book. Even though we may never have to experience this, we should ask ourselves, do we love Jesus enough to refuse to deny him and to be willing to die for him? A martyr is not a martyr because he has died for his faith, but because he was so WILLING to die for his faith. My faith has been strengthened because of this collection of stories. Like for many others, this book, next to the Bible, is truly the best book I've ever read.

The Church is Built on the Blood of the Martyrs

This is one of the most incredible collections of stories about people of FAITH and conviction I have ever read! Having never experienced persecution for my faith it is hard to read some of the detailed accounts of the trials and tribulations found in this book. My favorite portion of the book are the scripture references after each story. I also found the information about the persecution and death of Jesus' 12 disciples very interesting reading.All Christians living in the United States should purchase and read this book. What a gift of freedom, mercy and grace Christ has given to the Church in America. We have it so easy. Read this book and discover the sacrifies that were made, and continue to be made, so Christians could know the life saving (and life changing) power of Jesus Christ. Perhaps after reading this book as the collection plate is being passed next Sunday, it will be a little easier to give a sacrificial gift to the Lord.
