For a relatively short book, this publication covers an enormous amount of ground. Whitfield surveys Islamic and secular views of martyrdom, spars with Hegel and Wittgenstein and finds support from Augustine, Kierkegaard, Barth, Yoder, Milbank and a couple of Popes. In addition, he is abreast of most of the recent literature on martyrdom.
