Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! Today I speak with Roberts Liardon about his latest book in the wildly popular God’s General series, God’s Generals: The Martyrs (Whitaker House, 2016).

In this conversation, Roberts shares about the calling God placed on his life for sharing about His generals, how he chooses who to write about, and the future of this spectacular series.

About the Book:  In his sixth God’s Generals volume, Roberts Liardon chronicles some of the great martyrs for the faith—and some of the lesser-known ones. Their inspirational testimony, acts of courage, and even seasons of doubt both encourage and point awareness toward the persecuted church of the twenty-first century.

The book includes profiles on…

  • Apostle Paul and Stephen the Faithful (c. 100 AD)
  • Polycarp of Smyrna, Justin Martyr, and Ignatius of Antioch (c. 100-175 AD)
  • Perpetua, Blandina, and Irenaeus and Fabian (c. 175-350 AD)
  • William Tyndale, John Wyclyffe, Patrick Hamilton, and John Hus (c. 1300-1530)
  • Anne Askew, John Foxe, Hugh Latimer, and Thomas Cranmer (c. 1530-1560)
  • Martyrs from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
  • Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John and Betty Stam, and Jim Elliot (c. 1900-1950)
  • Wang Zhiming, Gaspar Makil, and Archbishop Oscar Romero (c. 1950-1990)
  • Martyrs from the twenty-first century, in regions such as the Philippines, Iraq, Libya, and Syria
