Mine is William Tyndale. He was burned at the stake on October 6, 1536 for the “crime” of translating parts of the Word of God into English.

Saaaame I was just gonna say that! My seconds is probably Betsy ten boom or there’s anothe but I can’t remember his name at the moment. I also admire Richard Wurmbrand.


@PlͥⱥgͣuͫeDoctor Tyndale was also very admirable!

I’ve read the book. At first I hated it but now I love it.

Yes, he was! I would have to say that Tyndale is one of my many heroes of the faith.

This is a bit off topic, but this does just say Christian martyrs. I also really like Nathan Hale. He was hung on September 22, 1776. His last words were, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

Has anyone read Fox’s Book of Martyrs?

Yeah watch the movie, it is free on Amazon Prime! It gives a good, but horrible picture of what he was talking about. It doesn’t include all of what they have done to the people he knew, his family, and what they had done to him. I still need to finish the book!

Those are hard for me to read. To think that people were treated so badly. Grrrrrr. I usually have to take a break or I’ll get a headache from it. (I watched the shack and hard a terrible migraine afterward)
