Publisher's Summary

David Brainerd (1718-1747) was a missionary to the Native Americans in Delaware, New York, New Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania. Edited by the eminent Puritan theologian and Preacher Jonathan Edwards, The Life and Diary of David Brainerd (1749) became a source of inspiration and encouragement to many Christians, including the theologian John Wesley and missionaries such as William Carey and Jim Elliot. Its major impact on the Protestant missionary movement of the 19th and early 20th century can hardly be overstated. For many early missionaries the Diary was like a second Bible. Brainerd faced many challenges in his work, including depression, loneliness, and physical illness, but his single-minded devotion to God served as a stable anchor.

Not what I expected

This is basically this guy reading from a diary at a tempo and in a monotone that I can probably use to help fall asleep. It may be okay for some people but in my case it is really hard to focus on and I probably wasted a credit. Oh well live and learn I guess
