BOOK-CAR-ChristianTest-175-CM The Christian Testimony Through the Ages

“The testimony of the Christ” is an apt definition of the church. Sustained by a power no less than that of the Spirit of God, this testimony has continued down through the ages. The world has not received it, or the world would not be what it is today. Strongest when most opposed and weakest when smiled on by the world, it has continued, in spite of all obstacles, because, while the testimony comes through frail human vessels, its light is divine and its power is of God.

 

Fox's Book of Martyrs Fox’s Book of Martyrs

This is a book that will never die—one of the great Christian classics. Written with passion and tenderness, it tells the dramatic, true stories of men, women, and children who, in the face of indescribable persecution, gave their lives for the sake of Christ. Covering the broad sweep of church history from the early church to the beginning of American foreign missions in the early 1800s, Fox’s Book of Martyrs continues to inspire and strengthen countless Christians with a vision of faith that, both in life and in death, commits itself utterly to the Lord of Life.
