Good day, dear readers! I am back with another review! This one was a fabulous and heartbreaking read. I hope that each of you will take the time to read it, and learn more about the 21 martyrs who were killed, just for staying convicted and living their faith.
Although I have the review below, I left this one shorter. I did not want to give too much of the book away. To say that I was blown away, would be an understatement. I loved this book. It made me cry, it made me angry, but it also helped to reaffirm what I believed, and in what these brave men believed in as well. Grab a copy of “The 21” by Martin Mosebach, and read the story of the brave men, who were beheaded, just for being a Christian.
The Coptic Christians are constantly under threat for their faith. There are dangers on a daily basis but these brave souls have put their faith in God, and trust him through everything. For the 21 brave men who were executed, simply for being Christian. Their faith supported them through the end of their lives. They took a stand, and they were killed for their faith. Martin Mosebach is helping their story and courage to live on – and to share with many others.
Martin Mosebach does a fabulous job of bringing this story, and the story of the Coptic Christians to light. While reading this book, I went through the gambit of emotions. The stories are heartbreaking, and the photos allow you to see these men as who they were before the video came to light.
If you are interested in history, then this book is a MUST read. The struggles, the triumphs, and more are lined out. Finally, I gained a better understanding of the Coptic Christians through this book.
