Lives Given, Not Taken: 21st Century Southern Baptist Martyrs book

Erich Bridges and Jerry Rankin have collaborated in writing a touching account of the lives and deaths of missionaries who have given their lives in service to our Lord. The book is aptly titled Lives Given, Not Taken: 21st Century Southern Baptist Martyrs book. One detailed chapter is devoted to the story of Martha Myers of Alabama. These testimonies of our missionaries will encourage and inspire anyone who takes the Great Commission seriously. It would be especially good reading for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering season.
