Martyr's Mirror

Author:  Thieleman J. Van Braght

Pages:  1157, Hardcover


In this gigantic work, the record of Christian faith and endurance from the first century to the Anabaptist persecutions in the sixteenth century is covered. Here are stories of men and women who died for their belief. Written in 1659 by a Dutch Mennonite to strengthen the faith of his fellow believers and translated into German in 1748 through 1749 at the time of the French and Indian War for the same reason. In 1886 it was translated into English. A challenge to many generations.
