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.

Foxe's Book Of Martyrs: An Edition for the People (Ambassador Classics)   Jun 20, 2008
The whole truth that will be visited upon us again. Foxe's Book Of Martyrs: An Edition for the People (Ambassador Classics)
Everyone house should have one  Jun 11, 2008
Foxe's Book of Martyrs was often read from as a family after reading the Bible. It reminds us that living the Christian life always costs something. I also remind my own children that there have been more Christian Martyrs in the past century than any other century. Christians around the world are dying for Christ everyday.

I gave this version of the book as graduation presents with gift cards inside. The book is hardcover and is in readable English, unlike some older translations. I highly recommend this copy for gifts.

Easy to Read  Dec 29, 2007
I bought two versions of this book, the other being in the original English of Foxe. I would recommend this version over the other since it is a lot easier to read, follow and understand. I wish it were hardcover, but it is a good choice otherwise.
S.C. Jyles  Dec 1, 2007
This is such a moving about how and why we should be able to suffer for our faith in our God. If this book does not inspire you to be a christian on your faith in God alone well I just don't know how you could call yourself a christian and hold your head up. This book has inspired me by the faith of others gone on before me to be able to withstand anyone or anything for who and what I believe in. To read in the Bible what some christian went through and it doesn't really go into full detail (the Bible) and then to have the Spirit to lead you to this book well it made me feel ashame of the way I have acted about people making fun of me because I am a disciple of Christ. I am a student in the word of God. I would highly recommend this book to weak christians or those being persecuted because of your faith in our Saviour.
Ultimate Christian Classic - Updated!  Sep 25, 2007
This the the most pure, most sincere book on Christians ever (next to the Bible, of course). Its pages are blood-soaked testimonies to men and women who did nothing much else, than give their lives for the cause of Christ.

*there is a publication solely devoted to John Calvin, titled, 'God the Creator, God the Redeemer' which is also a Bridge-Logos book. Calvinists are not targeted by the New Foxe's Book of Martyrs, which is true to the original.
