Jean Henri Merle D’Aubigné is justly renowned for his History of the Reformation. He captures the drama of the events as the shackles of Rome were broken under the influence of the Reformers. This book is a collection of extracts from those 13 volumes describing the martyrdom of a large number of believers for their convictions. The accounts vary in length but are all very moving – great faith, patience under trial, and bright hope for eternity characterise them all. It is a book that should be read by all Christians as a reminder of the price paid in the past by so many for the sake of the truth. It will also stir personal conviction in our day of compromise, when the great truths for which these men and women suffered are being abandoned.
