150 North American Martyrs You Should Know

  • Description: "In this compelling new book, Brian O' Neel tells the stories of martyrs associated with North America. Some are from other countries and died in their attempts to spread the faith on this continent. Some were born on this continent but died doing missionary work in other lands. Some were individual martyrs, and some were part of an heroic group. Some were “white martyrs" who, although they did not shed their blood for the faith, suffered much for the spread of their faith."
