Great book, but please beware....... Feb. 16 2012
By lovetoread - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My son has read all of the Hero Tales books and all the Trailblazer books as well so I was excited when I saw this book by the Jacksons. I was surprised to find out that the book was graphic in some areas. I know this is about people who were martyred for their faith and while I expected some deaths to be violent I was not prepared for the graphic descriptions of the abuse suffered by some of the women martyrs. I am not saying I wouldn't have bought it, but I would have been more careful in letting my son read it on his own. Please be warned that there are descriptions of rape and other sexual abuse in the book.

This book will be interesting to adults who enjoy delving into a wider world of our holier members ... Nov. 7 2014
By Joyce Bibzak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mistake was in hoping this book would be appropriate for younger readers. It's not.
This book will be interesting to adults who enjoy delving into a wider world of our holier members of humanity, be they
Protestant or Catholic. Unfortunately, this didn't quite fit the bill for an 8-year-old granddaughter who lives in the worlds of
both Lutheranism and Catholicism.

Spiritually Educational! May 16 2010

Love these books about Christian Heroes from these authors. They are informative and gets your attention. I teach 4th grade and my class loves these (Christian private school for those of you wondering how I could get away with reading Christian literature in a school).

This is a fantastic christian history lesson! Aug. 24 2009
By Ashley Sites - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my five year old and it is too much for him, but I have read many of the stories. I am learning so much about Christian history and the stories are well-told, seem accurate and are very convicting. A great choice for an adult or an older child!

martyrdom revealed at large Aug. 6 2013
By Justice Pirate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was great to finally read this book and learn about so many people who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Christ. Many of the people I had or hadn't known about before, but I loved that there were newer, more modern stories in this including my uncle, Timothy Van Dyke (which is ultimately why I purchased it). If you "love" martyr or missionary stories, definitely pick this book up.
