On Fighting the Fight of Faith

"Let us not run away when it is most time to fight. Remember, none shall be crowned but such as fight manfully; and he that endures to the end shall be saved. You must now turn all your cogitations from the peril you see, and mark by faith what follows the peril, either victory in this world of your enemies, or else a surrender of this life to inherit the everlasting kingdom." - John Hooper, in a letter from prison to his friends, three weeks before being burned to death in Gloucester.
