CROWNS OF BARBED WIRE
Yes, it's finally arrived!
"Crowns of Barbed Wire" will be published on Kindle next Friday 19th December ($9.99, £6.38, 8.02 Euros) A paperback version will be available from Amazon (CreateSpace) as soon as I can finish the formatting, probably early in the new year.
For those who don't already know, the book is an introduction to Orthodox martyrs of the twentieth century. It spans the world and covers the whole century, from the Boxer Rebellion of 1900 to the murder of a Chilean priest in 1997. Each section begins with a brief historical background to the period, followed by a selection of martyrs. A final section puts the Orthodox martyrs into the context of other Christian martyrs of the century. Out of the many thousands of martyrs, I've tried to choose representative examples to build up a moving panorama of courage and faith, which I hope will offer inspiration to believers and non-believers alike.
I realize that this isn't everybody's cup of tea but, since I'm publishing the book myself, I need all the marketing help I can get. Please share this post with anyone you think might be interested (or might have friends who might be interested or whose friends might have friends .....).
