Extreme Devotion is a collection of prayers, sayings, writings, and brief biographies of sixty Christians who died for their faith; from Stephen, the church's first martyr to Bahram Dehquani-Tafti of Iran, who was shot to death in 1981. In today's age of uncertainty, spiritual pluralism, and self-indulgence, the words of the martyrs remind us of the worthiness of Jesus and the costliness of the gospel. They humble us with their commitment, they fortify their faith with their honesty and certitude, and they direct our vision toward eternal realities that far outshine anything this world has to offer.

I purchased this book to use as a guide for our 10 minute devotional time we have daily before each shift. This is a food service setting in a retirement community, and the majority of our staff are highschool/college age teens. The length of each story is perfect for our time limit, and the impact we are already seeing is great. These true stories of Christian martyrs from ancient to present time hold power in challenging us to live up to the true calling of Christ. Great read for all ages!
