The first comprehensive history of the century that produced the greatest number of Catholic martyrs ever: it is estimated that more than one million people died for their faith in "the century of progress."
From Edith Stein to Oscar Romero, from the Calvary of Romania to the Chinese carnage-the stories told in this book (organized by geographic area) paint a challenging picture of what it means to be a Christian in modern times. A must read for everybody interested or involved with church history and religion.
