The book contains the heart-rending stories of those stalwarts of the Faith who are shining examples for the entire Bahá’í world community. The language employed in the book is very simple as it is primarily meant for the junior youths and the young adults. It is recommended to be used as a touching and inspiring reading material for young Bahá’ís. It is highly suitable to be used in the study circles especially while studying the Ruhi Book 4 on the history of the Faith.
The book narrates the true and emotional stories of nineteen simple, fearless and steadfast believers who joyfully sacrificed their lives while upholding their beliefs. Despite brutal persecutions, they persisted spreading the message of God tirelessly and advocated the advent of a new age. They professed the belief that the promised One, the One prophesized in all the religious scriptures of the past, had indeed appeared; and followed His noble teachings. These simple and innocent believers were unfortunately treated as criminals and were stripped of all their possessions and their precious lives. Betty Frost, the author, has gathered together the moving stories of these heroes and heroines of the Faith who suffered brutal persecutions and joyfully embraced martyrdom while upholding their faith and promoting the truth.
