Called “The father of American missions,” Adoniram Judson’s life challenges every Christian to examine his own life in light of eternity. As you read, you may find yourself pleading with Mr. Judson to rest for his health’s sake or encouraging him to take a well-deserved, prominent position in a mission society back in the States. Despite afflictions and calamities, he doggedly kept to the task of claiming Burma for Christ. Again and again, the reader is confronted by a dedication and devotion foreign to today’s American culture.
