Mine is a decidedly #unpopularopinion. Despite really wanting to bail, I powered through because I felt it was important to put my review out there, and I needed to finish it to feel that my review could be taken seriously. It is biased Christian propaganda, and I‘m saying that as a Christian. It is not a reliable look at the lives of 21 men slaughtered for their faith. It‘s repetitive and anti-Muslim.

Just started this LibraryThing Early Reviewers Book I won back in February and I fear I‘m going to struggle with the bias already being shown. Martyrs are not exclusive to Christianity or even religion. 😔 But...is the issue the author or the translator? 🤔

GingerAntics I can definitely see having an issue with this book from the little bit you‘ve shown here. Definitely bias, but if a translator is involved then that could just as easily be the issue as the author. 8mo
DGRachel @GingerAntics I didn‘t realize when I started that this was translated. I‘m willing to give the author a little leeway to allow for that, so we‘ll see. He claims his intent is to focus on the Coptic martyrs without discussing politics or Islam, but I‘m not sure how he‘s going to manage that. 8mo
GingerAntics @DGRachel yeah, I think that‘s only fair, but there is still a limit. I don‘t see how he can do that either. That‘s interesting. I‘m intrigued to see if he can manage to pull that off. If he can, I will be impressed. 8mo

DGRachel @GingerAntics I‘m hoping he manages to give a voice to the men who were murdered without unintentionally spreading the ISIS propaganda. I‘m a firm believer in honoring the victims without naming the perpetrators, especially when it comes to things like terror attacks and mass shootings. Fingers crossed! 8mo
GingerAntics @DGRachel oh I‘m with you 100% on that. I think we should do what NZ did and vow to never speak the terrorist‘s/mass shooter‘s names. I think the same should be true of serial killers. There is this show that‘s bringing to light a serial killer no one has heard of and I can‘t help wondering why. Let‘s talk about the victims and leave the killer nameless and anonymous. Just refer to him as “him.” 8mo
GingerAntics Good luck. Fingers crossed. Keep us posted. 8mo
rwmg From the extract, I don't think he's saying that only Christians can be martyred but challenging an assumption that the era of Christians being martyred as Christians is over. 8mo

Big #bookmail day today! I thought the tagged book, a win from LibraryThing‘s Early Reviewers program was going to be an ARC, but it‘s a finished hard cover!🤩🤩 The other two books are for book clubs: #lmpbc and the first pick for my office book club (that I don‘t want to read, but I lead the group so I really don‘t have a choice 🤷🏻‍♀️).

Kayla.Adriena Hey the signups are open if you want to join us again or abandon ship haha it's up to you!! 12mo
DGRachel @Kayla.Adriena I haven‘t been through my Litsy feed in a couple of days, so I didn‘t realize sign ups were open. I‘d love to join the group again! 12mo

Fascinating story of a polish couple that survived the halucust in consentration camp. The part I loved the most was that Meryl was able to locate her little brother that also survived, they both that that they were the only survivors.
