Who your heroes are says a lot about you. "We live in the shadows of our heroes. We look up to them. We try to live like them. Our heroes encourage and inspire us."
In A Martyr's Faith in a Faithless World, Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller urges readers to consider not only who their heroes are, but how those heroes shape them.
Wolfmueller shows that heroic martyrs St. Stephen, St. Perpetua, Polycarp, Romanus, and St. Agatha are not defined by their achievements, but by the power of faith that God worked within them. These martyrs demonstrate the heroism of following Christ with humble hearts in the face of affliction and death. Each martyr stands as a testament to the bold rejection of sin, patient endurance through affliction, and firm grounding in the ultimate joy of heaven. Wolfmueller expertly combines practical principles, Church history, and a rich use of Scripture to provide
encouragement for the Christian's struggle against suffering and sin. Ultimately, the book directs readers to look to Christ, who completed the greatest act of heroism in his saving death and resurrection.
