Amazing! Mar 12, 2003
This is a great book! I got it for Christmas and I have not missed a day of reading it. It will totally change the way you live your life, and make a big impact on your faith. It will make you bolder for Christ, and more thankful for all you have.
I highly reccommend this book to everyone, you'll love it!
Heart wrenching and inspiring Aug 8, 2002
This beautiful book (the cover and interior are designed beautifully) will break your heart and inspire you at the same time. You'll be amazed at the perseverance of Christian brothers and sisters around the world who have been persecuted for Christ. The layout in 1-page readings with scriptures and life applications is terrific. Get this book.
THIS BOOK WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD! Jan 29, 2002
Over and over as you read this book, you are challenged.
As I read each day's devotional I see an example of incredible, sacrificial faith in Jesus Christ. And each day I am pushed to ask myself: do I have that kind of faith?
What a challenge! And the stories are incredible and well told. I was struck by the variety of people who have faced the ultimate questions and answered firmly by following Christ's call to take up our crosses. Each day's reading features a story of a Christian, an application thought, and a scripture verse.
The Voice of the Martyrs has done a great job of presenting this material in a challenging way.
I especially like it that the days are numbered, instead of dated, so that you can easily start using this devotional any day of the year. That makes it a practical purchase or gift any time of year, not just around January 1.
Great book! Great challenge! Don't pick it up unless you're willing to face tough questions and have your life and faith changed.
Very Nice.... Jan 18, 2002
The book is organized into 365 daily readings, with each topic referencing someone who displayed "extreme devotion" even to the point of laying down theirs or a loved ones' life.
Nicely organized with side scriptures and commentary on the day's story.
I highly recommend. I just started reading, so I've only covered about 14 or more stories to date, but I look forward to spending time with the book each day!
