Killing The Faithful
They Paid The Ultimate Price
In his sixth's God's Generals volume, Roberts Liardon spans two thousand years to chronicle some of the great martyrs for the faith - and some of the lesser-known ones.
Especially at this time in history when terrorists are targeting believers,
the martyrs' inspirational stories of courage, faith, and perseverance are powerful reminders both to stand strong and to pray for the persecuted church of the twenty-first century.

Every Christian should rest this book and take it to heart."
