The Waldenses 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 centuries of papal supremacy, they defied the crushing power of Rome and rejected its false doctrines 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 fortress to share portions of Scripture with those searching for the light of God's Word. It is fitting that this newly typeset edition of their history should be reprinted to keep alive the spirit and knowledge of this ancient people. May it rekindle in the heart of all God's people the love of the truth and an unflinching courage to stand, whatever the cost. -back of book.
