China’s Book of Martyrs (Fire & Blood)
1 in stockCompare
His first volume in the “Fire and Blood” series of books tells the story of the church in China through a comprehensive account of all who have been martyred in that country for their faith in Christ. It is estimated that since the Nestorians first introduced the gospel to China in the seventh century, an estimated 250,000 Christians have died for their faith. And since 1900, more Christians have been killed for Christ in China than in all other countries of the world combined. China’s martyrs have included some well-known names, such as John and Betty Stam, Eric Liddell, whose life was celebrated in the film “Chariots of Fire”, and Watchman Nee. But the great majority of China’s martyrs have been unsung heroes of the Christian faith: simple men and women, boys and girls who when tested ‘did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death’ (Rev 12:10-11). “Those martyrs…are like Abel, of whom it is written ‘By faith he still speaks, even though he is dead’ (Heb 11:4). – “Brother Yun, ‘The Heavenly Man'”. As you read about China’s Christian martyrs, you will meet hundreds of brothers and sisters who laid down their lives for the kingdom of God. It will change your life!
