Free Audio Book from ChristianAudio ~ Foxes Book of Martyrs

Friday, May 1, 2009

Christianaudio is offering Foxes Book of Martyrs (Unabridged) by John Foxe as a free audio download. Many have been blessed to read this work. A history of the lives, sufferings and triumphant deaths of the early Christian and the Protestant martyrs.

“When one recollects that until the appearance of the Pilgrim’s Progress the common people had almost no other reading matter except the Bible and Fox’s Book of Martyrs, we can understand the deep impression that this book produced; and how it served to mold the national character. Those who could read for themselves learned the full details of all the atrocities performed on the Protestant reformers; the illiterate could see the rude illustrations of the various instruments of torture, the rack, the gridiron, the boiling oil, and then the holy ones breathing out their souls amid the flames. Take a people just awakening to a new intellectual and religious life; let several generations of them, from childhood to old age, pore over such a book, and its stories become traditions as individual and almost as potent as songs and customs on a nation’s life.” ~ Douglas Campbell, “The Puritan in Holland, England, and America”

A free electronic written version can be accessed here.
