John Hooper

I'm reading through the book The New Foxe's Book of Martyrs. I'm not sure why I've never read it before, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it now. It's an encouragement, and I highly recommend it. I've just finished the life and death of John Hooper. Have you ever wondered what the epitat on your tombstone will say? Here's how Foxe summed up Hooper's life -- "He was earnest in his doctrine, eloquent in his speech, perfect in the Scriptures, and untiring in his efforts." Wow, what an example! That's what I want to be said about me.
