Adoniram Judson (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

51gdpwr6gtl-_sx310_bo1204203200_As America’s first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson thirsted to see the Good News brought to the shrouded land of Burma. His thirst would be quenched, but at an unimaginable price. Adoniram survived starvation, imprisonment, and torture both on land and at sea only to watch his family, coworkers, and friends succumb to death.

In spite of heartache and depression, Adoniram Judson translated the entire Bible into Burmese. To this day his work remains the only Burmese translation of the Bible available. Adoniram and his first wife Ann were the spark that spread the fire of the Gospel into Burma, and their evident love for the Burmese people is a compelling story of unswerving dedication and sacrifice.

  1. I just read this book and finished it in two days… I think as a new mom, it hit me more deeply the kind of sacrifice Adoniram Judson made by serving as a missionary. I couldn’t imagine losing one child, much less so many more out in the mission field, and yet his love for the lost continued to spur him to minister in Burma. Just felt really challenged to continue to keep giving it my all and my best to God.
