Start your review of Martyrs
This book examines the history of four events of martyrdom:
1) The Stoning of Stephen
2) Perpetua in the arena
3) The Thundering Legion
4) Polycarp

The account and illustrations are action packed, interesting and thought provoking. My only regret was a profound disappointment that only four events are chosen of the hundreds of possibilities. A refreshingly different approach from the two other fine resources I recommend: The Torchlighters DVD series and Simonetta's Carr's Christian Biographies for Yo
