Solid Ground Christian Books

The Waldeneses hold a special place in our Christian heritage. Their defense of the faith of Jesus despite persecution and martyrdom is unique in the christian church. During the long centries of papal supremacy, they defied the crushing power of Rome and rejected its false doctines and human traditions. This stalwart people cherished and preserved the pure Word of God. Throughout this time, despite the great danger involved, Waldensian missionaries left their rocky fortresses to share portions of scripture with those searching for the light of God's Word.

"This book, taken from the larger volumes of 'The History of Protestantism', recounts the sufferings of the evangelical Waldenses under the cruel hands of their persecutors. Birthed as a separatistic holiness movement in the middle ages, in the sixteenth century the Waldenees embraced Reformed theology. Their struggles and sorrows remind us that in this world we will have tribulation, but Christ has overcome the world." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
