The Lord Shall Be My Comfort
In the year 1551, a woman named Catharine was sentenced to fire. While yet in prison, she was greatly tormented by the monks, in order to make her apostatize, but she said, I stand so firmly to my faith that for i, to the honor of God, I will suffer myself to be burned at the stake.

However, by the time you get through with this booklet, it should make perfect sense to you. It is a powerful picture of salvation and a powerful Bible lesson in forgiveness and exactly how we get it. I encourage you to read on.
What the New Testament Says About the Jew
Bible-believing churches have ignored Jewish evangelism for too long. This booklet acts as a help to believers who are still prejudiced toward reaching the Jew. However, it is also written to be a witnessing tool to lost Jewish people. Make sure your church has something like this on hand.
