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.
