Martyrs 2000-2010

Each year approximately 100,000 believers in Christ have lost their lives prematurely, in situations of witness, as a result of human hostility in the first 10 years of this century.

The Current martyr situations (2000-2010) query documents the 16 largest martyr situations from AD 2000 to 2010, extending documentation already published for AD 33 to AD 2000 on the Martyrs home page.

A Summary of all Epochs extends the research originally published in World Christian Trends and furthers "the evidence for the startling conclusion that, over the 20 centuries of the Christian faith, some 70 million Christians have been murdered for that faith and hence are called martyrs."
