ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - July 20, 2016) - Internationally renowned author and spiritual leader, Roberts Liardon has completed the sixth volume of his bestselling book series "God's Generals" which documents the lives and missions of Christian leaders. The series has sold over 1 million books worldwide and has been translated into more than 60 languages. "God's Generals: The Martyrs" is set to be released in October 2016.
In his new book, Roberts Liardon chronicles some of the great martyrs for the faith -- and some of the lesser-known ones. From the Apostle Paul to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from Polycarp to John and Betty Stam, their inspirational testimonies, acts of courage, and even seasons of doubt both encourage today's believer and raise awareness for the persecuted church of the twenty-first century. "God's Generals: The Martyrs" is more timely than ever as Christians witness horrific acts of violence and uncertainty in an increasingly connected, yet disconnected world, and desperately need examples of those that had the courage to live according to their beliefs, unashamed of being a Christian.
Roberts Liardon hopes readers will be inspired to find their motivation from God to accomplish their goals and do good work and outreach to members of their community. "Goals not inspired by heaven are foolish, God will come into your plans. But the choice is yours whether you allow him to begin it, or force him to end it," he believes. Acts of bravery, kindness, and love, even in the face of fear, do not go unnoticed and have the power to heal broken or lost souls. He points out that martyrs are good role models for grace under pressure. Liardon says they teach us how to handle persecution and oppression of any kind; to do what is right with determination. Roberts acknowledges the spiritual battle is real and we make right and wrong decisions every day. We can learn from those that are willing to sacrifice their lives, that Jesus has prepared us to handle life's challenges through the scriptures. Whether our obstacle is physical, mental, or spiritual, it will lead us closer to Our Lord who endured great suffering for all humanity.
