Not exactly for the weak constitution, the audio version of Foxe is quite good. It is obviously trimmed back from the written version, but still contains the mainstream content (all of the most important martyrs are present). Foxe, a significant figure in the Protestant Reformation, was an eye witness to many Christians being killed for their faith (both Protestant and Catholic). This persecution lead him to delve into other persecutions throughout the Church's history with the result being this book. The audio is read by a woman (unknown) who has a clear speaking voice and comes across without boring the listener. Well worth the purchase price. Run Time: 90 minutes.
Foxe has written an excellent book detailing the sacrifices (often with their lives) followers of Jesus Christ have paid.

While Foxe mentions well-known sufferers and martyrs in Christian circles such as the Apostles, Wycliffe, Luther, Latimer, and others, he also mentions less well-known figures. While some names are less known, their sacrifices were just as real and have not been forgotten.

Read and be challenged to not take for granted the freedom to be a Christian! Today, fellow Christians are being martyred just like in Foxe's times.
One reviewer of this book was confused in thinking that he or she would find an extensive bibliography and that there would be an objective view of the martyrs and the Catholics. Evidently that reviewer did not realize that this text was written during the Protestant Reformation from first hand accounts and that any accounts of martyrs being told will have some degree of subjectivity especially if the accounts are being written at a time of persecution when hundreds of Protestants were being tortured and burned at the stake. The Catholic Church at that time would of course have a bad reputation and might be thought of as not Christian. An historical understanding of the period would be very helpful to the reader and especially that reviewer.
