More About John Foxe

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Blanchard, Amos a Congregational minister, was born at Peacham, Vt., Sept. 8, 1800. He began his academical studies at the age of twenty-one years, and graduated from the Andover Theological Seminary in 1828, in which year he was licensed to preach. The first year after graduation he spent in Western New York, in the employment of the American Tract Society. Then for three years he edited the Cincinnati Christian Journal. He was ordained to the ministry July 27, 1831, by the Presbytery of Cincinnati. In the following year he returned to New England, and was installed Dec. 9 as pastor of the Congregational Church in Lyndon, Vt., remaining until the winter of 1835. After spending a year and a half as acting pastor at Cabotsville, Mass., he was installed in Warner, N. H., in 1837. Meriden, Conn., was his next field of labor, where he was installed in 1840; from this charge he was dismissed more than twenty-five years afterward, removing to Barnet, Vt., where he died, Jan. 6, 1869. Among his literary remains are five published discourses. John Foxe (1516/17 - 18 April 1587) was an English historian and martyrologist, the author of Actes and Monuments (popularly known as Foxe's Book of Martyrs), an account of Christian martyrs throughout Western history but emphasizing the sufferings of English Protestants and proto-Protestants from the fourteenth century through the reign of Mary I. Widely owned and read by English Puritans, the book helped mould British popular opinion about the Catholic Church for several centuries.

John Foxe lived in Lincolnshire Boston/Lincolnshi. John Foxe was born in 1516 and died in 1587.

Reviews - What do customers think about Foxes Book Of Martyrs?

The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs   Mar 12, 2007
This is a wonderful book. Every Christian should have one of these. This book is also an excellent historical account of the dark days of the church and what Christians are going through today. As a history buff it is a great read.
Triumph of Love of God Over Power Politics  Dec 27, 2006
Gripping and insightful, it delivers more than the story of martyrs for the faith. Yes, it's stylized writing for its time and narrowly focuses on a subject designed specifically to encourage the pious protestant through hardship. This classic study is also a fascinating revelation of human behavior and power politics. Focused mainly on the realm of Bloody Mary, it reveals control freaks at their worst - forcing not just what you do, but what you think. As we watch this abysmal pattern of behavior playing out again across the middle east, it's more timely reading than you'd think. It's profoundly moving and highly recommended.
Nice read but beware this is not a word for word reprint of the original work  Dec 22, 2006
John Foxe's Book of Martyrs is indeed a classic of Christian literature. John Foxe was born in 1517 and died in 1587. John Foxe documented the persecutions of Christians from the foundation of the church through his time. Outside of the Bible itself, this is one of the few books every Christian should read. From time to time the book has been updated to cover generations John would not live to see. While this book is a worthy read - be aware that this is not a faithful word for word reprint of the original works but as the cover says a rewrite. If you are interested in a rendition which remains more faithful to the the original author's words, look for a reprinted edition edited by (co-author) William Forbush.
I have a copy of this book...  Dec 10, 2006
I own a copy of this book....over 400 years after it was first published. According to the Introduction, John Foxe died in A.D. 1587; seventeen years after he published this work.

He had to write and edit this by hand because a typewriter hadn't been invented yet. Foxe's Book of Martyrs is over 400 typed-pages. Imagine the effort it took. The amount of ink and paper. The cramped, tired hand. If he wrote outside, he was susceptible to distractions. If he wrote inside, he may at times have had only a flickering fire light. All for what? It took him years to complete with no guarantee that it would ever be finished, or published. All for future generations. He most likely couldn't have conceived that the Lord would tarry at least four hundred more years.

Thank God for this book. I now know history that I had NEVER been told before. Had I not read this book, I would never have understood the true positions of the Pope and the Protestants.

I visited the Vatican and the Tower of London in 2004, but only went as a tourist. I didn't have any idea of the significance of the Tower of London. What evils took place. And the Pope! The wool was taken away from my eyes because of what John Foxe thought necessary to document. Thank You, Lord, for this book!
