Paperback

Explore the life of America's first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson (1788-1850), who was devoted to serving God for over 38 years in Burma, no matter the cost. The son of a congregational minister, Judson was a precocious young man who aspired to gain exceptional worldly fame through some prominent secular career. But following a crisis of faith and a stunning turn of events that exposed the vanity of mere temporal pursuits, he went on to study for the Christian ministry and to dedicate his life to missionary service. With unshakable faith in God and His Word, Judson persevered through staggering difficulties. His unremitting labor and devotion were used of the Lord to spread the Gospel and to establish healthy Christian congregations throughout Burma. Judson's example was an inspiration to untold thousands in his own day and still has the power to encourage and instruct believers today.

Inspirational reading
5 stars By Ian, Jul 20 2015
In an age when inspirational can often mean just feeling good, this biography goes far deeper. Adoniram Judson's commitment to the cause of Christ in Burma (Myanmar) came at a cost that challenges easy Christianity and sporadic devotion. We begin to realise that, over the years, there have been tough assignments that God has asked his people to undertake, where the conditions might have taken a personal toll and the real losses have to measured against the greater good of lives saved and Christ honoured. You will be in awe of Judson's 'devotion for life.' Your own perseverance will be rekindled to press ahead with your own God-challenges and Christ-call. Writer, Vance Christie, has done a great job of following the main story line, while still managing to fold in the side stories. One of the best biographies I've read in a while!
