Publisher's Summary

As America's first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson (1788-1850) spent 38 years working in Burma, then one of the most hostile countries on Earth. Judson was ignored, mocked, beaten, and tortured, yet he never lost sight of his goal to translate the Bible into the Burmese language. Today, over 150 years after his death, his translation remains the only translation of the Bible in Burmese.

Very inspiring

Reading Adoniram Judson's biography definitely caused a perspective shift in my life. It's hard to imagine the suffering and loss this missionary endured and persevered through to complete his vision for the Burmese people. His translation of the Bible to this people group is still influential in translation ministry today. He accepted the call and sacrificed himself to fulfill it.

An engaging account of one man's love for Christ.

I was amazed with the suffering and God's provision for Adoniram. An inpiration for me as I desire Christ to be seen in the works of my hands, works that only God can do.

Encouraging & Convicting!

Wow, what an amazing story! In listening, I was often convicted by the manner in which Judson held to a faith in his God even amidst the immense pain of loss in Burma.

That said, I think there was ample room to dive deeper into the emotional/spiritual state of Judson in his time in Burma and in America. This would encourage us as readers in our daily Christian walk as we learn how to hold fast to Christ.

All in all, a wonderful read! Highly recommended!
