Jesus Freak Posted June 12, 2008 This book is pretty awesome! So so many different stories about martyrdom are told with about 2 or 3 pages dedicated to each martyr ( if I remember right).

It is well worth reading.

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.

This book made my problems seem small. After reading about what other Christians went through, I was more thankful. If you are a person with a depressive disorder, like myself, you'll need to take your reading in smaller increments or the readings could have the opposite effect.

this is a good book to take with you. The stories are short, so if you are waiting somewhere, instead of getting irritated, you can spend your time reading this book. It would also be a nice gift to give to someone.

each person wrote about in this tiny treasure encouraged me, broke my heart, and drove me to share their stories. their love for Christ and the desire to share the Good news. they give themselves totally, to the Lord, strengthened by the Holy Spirit to trust and hang on the the Father to the point of rejection by family, loved ones, mobs of angry people to the point of death to remain in Christ.
thank you Toby Mac and all the others that put these stories together. i have given them to friends and will continue to pass them on.

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.

Really an encouraging volume to read. But it works best if you read a half dozen or so at a time. More than that and it starts to depress, as almost everyone dies. Admittedly that is the point of martyrdom, dying heroically for Jesus. One that I read at random however, before buying the book, sold it to me. A pretty girl chickened out of going for a long prison term and sold out her fellow believers for a much reduced sentence. That was so honest, it convinced me to get it. Not everyone is a plaster statue saint. And it also showed the sort of trickery anti-Christians use.
MUST HAVE WILL BRING TEARS TOO YOUR EYES LOVE THIS BOOK SHARE WITH MY GRANDKIDS THE LOVE IT
