Ray E. Atwood, a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Dubuque, Iowa, a master of divinity degree, master of arts degree in systematic theology, as well as having a bachelor of arts degree in journalism/mass communication, has completed his new book “Precious in the Eyes of the Lord: Martyrdom in Christian Tradition”: a comprehensive work on the lives and deaths of martyrs throughout the ages since the dawn of theistic faith and belief.
Author Atwood proclaims the unwavering and astounding courage of martyrs in facing all kinds of deaths, all in the name of the Christian faith: “He rejected all attempts to embrace false worship. This led to threats to torture him and his companions without mercy. Justin placed his hope in the Savior and eternal life promised by Him. Realizing that his efforts were in vain, the prefect sentenced the philosopher and his companions to death. They were promptly beheaded and so fulfilled their witness of martyrdom in confessing their faith in their Savior. Justin and his companions were martyred during the reign of Marcus Aurelius around the year 165.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Ray E. Atwood’s enriching narrative emphasizes the last moments of the saints as they offered their lives as living sacrifices for the glory of God and to spread the good news of salvation – a memorable life filled with bountiful virtues, compassion, fortitude, and patriotism.
Readers who wish to experience this powerful magnum opus can purchase “Precious in the Eyes of the Lord: Martyrdom in Christian Tradition” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
