My Thoughts: As I read through this book, I found myself thinking about those who were persecuted for giving witness to their faith and what it cost them. In the past and what we see happening now, so heartbreaking yet inspiring. This continuing persecution many Christians are facing today.. anyone wanting to learn more about the history of Christianity and about those who died for their faith will want this in their library.
Bearing Witness: Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship From the stoning of Stephen in the first-century Jerusalem to Nigerian Christians persecuted by Boko Haram in 2015, these stirring accounts will inspire greater faithfulness to the way of Jesus, reminding believers what costly discipleship looks like in any age. Bearing Witness brings together dozens of accounts from around the world of Christians who gave witness to their faith in the face of intense persecution, even if it costs them their lives.
