Defenders of the faith have been raised up in every era of the Church to proclaim fidelity to the truths by their words and deeds. Some have fought heresy and overcome confusion: Athanasius against the Arians and Ignatius Loyola in response to the Protestant reformers. Others have shed their blood for the faith: the early Christian martyrs of Rome, or Thomas More, John Fisher and Edmund Campion in Reformation England. Others have endured a "dry" martyrdom: St. Philip Howard, Josef Cardinal Mindszenty and Jesuit Walter Ciszek. All these holy people, and many like them, are chronicled in this book. All are genuine Catholic heroes, and all ages, especially the 21st century, are in need of such inspiring figures. Paper.
