Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from www.bookfun.org
In his sixth book, God’s Generals:  Martyrs, Roberts Liardon covers some of the martyrs of the Christian faith.  Roberts Liardon discusses martyrs such as Paul, Polycarp, Thomas Cranmer, and many others.  The book covers multiple martyrs spanning from the birth of Christianity to today over many parts of the world throughout time.  The author is very thorough in going through the events that show the persecution the church and missionaries have faced for centuries.  Throughout the book the author points out how martyrs are a good role model for grace under pressure.  Each section of the book covers a time period, and the martyrs discussed within each period in history are given a clear background into their lives and respective callings.
God’s Generals:  Martyrs is a book that comes at a critical time in the Christian Church; a time when Christians face persecution in places like China, Afghanistan, and Syria.  Robert touches on this topic right at the beginning of the book.  He emphasizes the fact that this persecution is, while terrible, something that provides an opportunity to show God’s love even to those that want to kill His messengers.  The book tells the historical facts of those believers who came before and gave their all to spread the Gospel and make a stand for truth.  God’s Generals is an important read for Christians today, giving us a clear and informative picture of those brothers and sisters that came before us, and the example they gave in their lives.  This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge on Church history or wishes to learn more about martyrs of the faith.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
