Cox's Book of Modern Saints and Martyrs
The classic "Fox's Book of Martyrs" has long been regarded as a source of spiritual inspiration with its stories of those prepared to die for their faith. This contemporary version gives an equally inspiring account of living saints, enlightening the dark side of stories of martyrdom, as well as celebrating the faith of Christians from around the world. These stories illustrate ways in which men and women experience a transformation of their lives through a dynamic relationship with their living God, whom they love so deeply that they are willing to sacrifice all they have for him and in his service.

Table of contents
Stories from around the world, particularly from areas of Christian persecution or conflict zones. Today over 250 million Christians are suffering persecution, while tens of thousands are martyred every year.
"'During my work with the persecuted church, I have met many people who are suffering for their faith and I always return from my travels humbled and inspired by their courage, faith, dignity and "miracles of grace". Many stories of those living on the frontiers of faith illustrate spiritual blessings such as joy, peace and love in ways which are far from depressing.' - Caroline Cox"
