I have been reading christian biographies and history quite extensively over the last couple of years. One book that I had purchased that truly had touched me was a book on the history of the Waldenses by J.A. Wylie. I am familiar with the persecution that my christian forefathers have suffered due to their faith. The Waldenses were astoudingly resilient for the cause of Christ and the survival for the faith that was once delivered to them. It made me reflect on how important the perseverance of the saints truly is especially in light of such severe persecution. It made me search myself in how far would I go in my sacrifice for my christian faith. I also read on Ligonier this brief article which I felt would be a fantastic introduction to the Waldenses prior to engaging the actual book by Wiley.
