View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The classic 'Fox's Book of Martyrs' has long been regarded as a source of spiritual inspiration with its stories of those prepared to die for their faith. This contemporary version gives an equally inspiring account of living saints, enlightening the dark side of stories of martyrdom as well as celebrating the faith of Christians from around the world.

'During my work with the persecuted church, I have met many people who are suffering for their faith and I always return from my travels humbled and inspired by their courage, faith, dignity and "miracles of grace". Many stories of those living on the frontiers of faith illustrate spiritual blessings such as joy, peace and love in ways which are far from depressing.'
- Caroline Cox

These stories illustrate ways in which men and women experience a transformation of their lives through a dynamic relationship with their living God, whom they love so deeply that they are willing to sacrifice all they have for him and in his service.

Review:

Article on Barbara Cox in The Church of England Newspaper June 2 2006. 'There are few people more qualified to write such a book' Matt Cresswell - The Church of England Newspaper June 2 2006 (Matt Creswell)

'Her book poses perhaps the key question of our age, or of any age: where can we find a peace which the troubles of this world cannot destroy? And the answer it seems, paradoxically, is very often in the middle of those troubles.'Nick Wyke, The Times, 14/10/2006 (Nick Wyke Times)

'The full text of Mehdi Dibaj's defence testimony is included.'~ Catherine Butcher, Christianity, 2006 (Catherine Butcher)

"...The stories in this collection will be a useful resource to share with those, whether student or not, who struggle with faith: What does it mean? How is it lived? Is God to be trusted? Where are there credible models of faith? Its compelling nature will resonate with young people who seek vital and vibrant role models that confirm and stir up their own idealism. The stories, uneven in length and detail, organized by global regions, describe ordinary people involved in extraordinary actions—on behalf of a faith community—supported often only by faith. Cox tells the stories because she believes that all Christians are called to the same level of commitment." —Ruth Poochigian, Catholic Books Review, 2007 (Ruth Poochigian)
