This book is composed of extracts from those 13 volumes and covers the martyrdom of many for their convictions. The accounts vary in length but are all very moving; the great faith, composure under duress and bright hope for eternity of each one shine through. It is a book that should be read by all evangelical Christians as a reminder of the cost paid by so many in the past for the sake of the truth, and as a spur to personal conviction in our day of easy compromise when the great truths for which these men and women suffered are being so easily laid aside.
