So begins the story of Roman citizen Aulus Aurelius who, along with his family, was murdered for his faith in AD 67. Since then he has observed Earth from Heaven and now writes these letters to the modern church. With unique insights on eternity, prayer, and the Kingdom of God, he will challenge today’s Christian to have intimacy with God in private and boldness before others in public. Aulus tells of: • A Vietnamese Christian who sifted through human waste in prison latrines for excerpts from the Bible. • An Eastern European orphan who died for the Gospel and changed history. • A girl saved from suicide by a faithful Christian and three simple words—“I love you.” Letters From a Martyred Christian is page-turning fiction that will grip readers from the first sentence, but it also encourages practical application. It is designed with Christian discipleship classes, small groups, and book clubs in mind. Discussion questions for each chapter are included. “Many nights I was unable to sleep. I would pace in our garden, staring at the stars and pleading with God. I had three requests: One, that I would remain faithful to the Gospel. Two, that if need be, I would die in a way that pleased Him. And three, that my wife and children would not suffer. Two of my requests were granted.”

    In A.D. 67 Aulus Aurelius was convicted of treason against the Emperor by being a member of the 'cult of Christus". Unwilling to renounce his faith in the creator God, Aulus watched as first his daughter then his wife were killed by the Roman soldiers for their faith. He too was martyred into the arms of Christ. Once in Heaven Aulus watches those on earth and writes letters from Heaven to the modern day church in hopes of encouraging their faith.

Unwilling to renounce his faith in the creator God, Aulus watched as first his daughter then his wife were killed by the Roman soldiers for their faith. He too was martyred into the arms of Christ. Once in Heaven Aulus watches those on earth and writes letters from Heaven to the modern day church in hopes of encouraging their faith. The world we live in is nor our home, just a brief stop on our way to eternity. Aulus describes how minuscule we truly are in the realm of Gods creation. Only that done for Christ will last and only those who accept him will walk the streets of Heaven. Fictional of course as Aulus describes Heaven and all he sees there. The wisdom though that comes biblically is real. Aulus brings a new perspective on your life on earth as temporal, rejoicing in what he sees and learns in Heaven. He encourages your paradigm change to focus on the biblical, the truth, the eternal rather than just what is fleeting before your eyes. You can use this book as daily thoughts, devotions, snippets of reading as it is broken down into 14 letters. To fully reflect I don't feel it is meant to be read straight through, but letter by letter with time in-between for pondering, prayer and reflection.

    I received this books from the Good Reads Giveaway. I needed this book It explains that there is more then one way to be a Martyr for Christ. You can lay down your life for our LORD without dying completely but dying rather to this world. I carry this book in my purse and read it when I need some encouragement.

I have a special needs child, who has been through so much, and yes I sometimes ask why…..and I know why but I still ask our LORD why. This book was a blessing to receive and I greatly appreciate it. The beginning was hard to read, after the first chapter I put the book down for a couple of days. I let the first chapter sink in, and thought deeply about it. Would I have done that too? Would I have been that brave for our LORD? Are we afraid of dying? Am I afraid of dying? After reading this book, I wasn’t afraid of death anymore, not as much as I realized I was before I read the book. The way he described heaven was beautiful…and I pray that is how it really is when we all leave this earth. Even if heaven isn’t like that, JESUS will be there and that is beautiful enough.

    Letters from a Martyred Christian by H.L. Hussmann is a book of letters from a martyr, Aulus Aurelius. It is written as fiction and the author makes sure to state in the beginning that this is so and he used creative liberty with the pictures of heaven and such. Aulus starts with his own story of his martyrdom and then each letter is a lesson taken from different stories. It was a very enjoyable read although there were some ideas that I didn't totally agree with. One of them being the idea that Letters from a Martyred Christian by H.L.

It was a very enjoyable read although there were some ideas that I didn't totally agree with. One of them being the idea that in order for God to do some things we have to pray other wise God won't do it. God is sovereign and what He wants and wills to do will happen no matter what. That really bothered me. Overall though it is a pretty good book. I received a free copy of this product through Book Crash in exchange for my honest review.

    While staying well within historic Christian orthodoxy, Hussmann provides plenty of imaginative fodder for the thoughtful Christian. Through the well-developed and believable character Aulus, the reader is offered a first-hand account of the afterlife, as well as sound advice on how to maintain a healthy view of reality. In his letters, Aulus provides a throne-side perspective of scripture, humility, the kingdom of god, suffering, and redemption, all in a smooth and engaging prose, the aim of wh While staying well within historic Christian orthodoxy, Hussmann provides plenty of imaginative fodder for the thoughtful Christian.

In his letters, Aulus provides a throne-side perspective of scripture, humility, the kingdom of god, suffering, and redemption, all in a smooth and engaging prose, the aim of which is readability rather than profundity. At once provocative, challenging, and emotionally wrenching. Each chapter is short enough to be read in a single sitting, and each will inevitably spark further thought/discussion. Recommended for personal or large group devotional study, or just a good read on a plane. Primarily intended for a Christian audience, though non-Christian readers interested in the Christian worldview will benefit as well.

    I purchased this book from the author and am so glad that I did. I read a chapter a day, along with my devotional and bible readings as he suggested. This is a short book and very easy to read, but it has inspired me to be a better Christian. I always believe that many of the books that I read come to me for a reason and after reading this, know that this was one of them. I look forward to the day when Christ returns to bring us all home - to a place where there is no pain, heartache,sadness, en I purchased this book from the author and am so glad that I did.

I look forward to the day when Christ returns to bring us all home - to a place where there is no pain, heartache,sadness, envy, rage, anger, etc. To live in the Lord's kingdom, now that is truly something to hope for! I liked the last chapter the best where Aulus tries to describe what Heaven is like...I can only imagine myself surrounded by loving people and of course, my books.... :) and to meet the people who's lives I've touched and never even knew it. Praise God!! PS Thank you Mr. Hussmann for giving us a glimpse!

    I made the mistake of seeing this book's high rating and requesting it on PaperBackSwap before checking how many ratings it had — only a couple dozen. I also made the mistake of thinking that this was a collection of actual letters from a martyred Christian, only realizing after I got it that it was a work of fiction of a historical figure writing letters to Earth after he died.

After I started reading this, I looked up the publisher, and as I expected, the author runs the publishing company, which seems to have only published this and one other book of his. From what I read (almost half), he tried to include a diverse case of characters from around the world, which I appreciated, but I found the messaging both heavy-handed and scattershot. It's under 200 pages, but I'm not going to make myself finish it at this point.

    This book was wonderful. Each chapter (letter) was just as good as the previous one and touched me in a completely different way. I know the stories were mostly fictional but I'd like to believe that similar things happened throughout history and peoples's lives were touched as they were in the book. Not only was this book entertaining and enlightening, it also allowed me to reflect on my own faith and actions. I even had my mom read it as soon as I was finished! Next, I will read it with my hus This book was wonderful. Each chapter (letter) was just as good as the previous one and touched me in a completely different way.

Next, I will read it with my husband. It is the type of book that you could pick up at different times in your life and see it from different perspectives!
