Life of David Brainerd | [Jonathan Edwards]

Life of David Brainerd

Though he was orphaned at age 14, repeatedly struck with debilitating illnesses, and unfairly expelled from college, Brainerd allowed nothing to deter him from serving God wholeheartedly. He traveled thousands of miles by horseback across treacherous terrain to preach the gospel to remote Indians. Their benefit ultimately brought about his early death at the age of 29. This book not only offers a captivating story, but an uplifting buoy for those who are weary, distant, or discouraged.

    "Narration is perfect"

    I decided to give this book a try after hearing it mentioned by John Piper in his book, "Desiring God" and reading exerpts on John Piper's website.

    I sampled the audio first before I made my purchase and after listening to Nick Cordileone's narration, I knew I had to hear to the whole thing. Nick Cordileone's vocal pitch, pacing and expression are perfect for this book. I can't imagine David Brainerd himself doing a better job. Also, the quality of the recording is extremely good, in spite of the occasional instance of repetition.

    Listening to this book has changed my life. The passion young David Brainerd expressed in his journal writings of his love for God and his desire to live his life for the glory of God is profound and awe-inspiring. If the longing of your heart is to know God more deeply, you can't go wrong with this book.

    Story
    "One of those "life changing" books"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book (along with Foxe's Book of Martyrs and Pilgrims Progress) should be required reading for all Christians. Brainerd's introspective life is a great source of inspiration and promotes a strong desire to live a life pleasing to God, not self.

    "Totally given to God"

    Nick Cordileone really brings David Brainerd to life! You feel as if you are hearing his voice as he grieves, rejoices, and records the events of his life.
    At times I felt great pity for Brainerd who continually abased himself for his own imperfections. I wonder if he really ever felt loved by God as he should have.
