On Fire for Christ: Stories of Anabaptist Martyrs (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

The stories of 15 Anabaptist martyrs are retold by Dave and Neta Jackson from Martyrs Mirror. These stories, including those of Michael Sattler, Elizabeth Dirks, and Dirk Willems, reflect a cross-section of the thousands of men and women who lost their lives because of their faith during the 16th century.

The storytelling perspective varies: sometimes from the martyr's point of view or that of a friend or relative, sometimes that of a child or bystander--or even the executioner or betrayer. The martyrs come alive through these stories and their witness for Christ inspires us.

Discussion questions focus on present-day meaning making this a valuable tool for study groups.

Dave and Neta Jackson are the authors or coauthors of about 100 books. In addition to the young people's books, the Trailblazer series and the Hero Tales, the Jacksons have coauthored numerous books with expert resource people on a variety of topics from racial reconciliation to medical ethics to ministry to kids in gangs.
