Product Description

Publisher's Description

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 headache 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.

Endorsement
 
From a privileged upbringing to a dirty prison cell, life for Adoniram shows us how life serving the Lord is not always easy. In 1811, Adoniram, on his way to London, found his ship overtaken by French Privateers! How did God intervene to save him from what would likely have been a deadly situation?

Finally in Feb 1812, Adoniram and his new wife, Ann were on their way to India planning to go from there to Burma but all they encountered was hostility! How did they finally make it to Burma? Learning the language was their first mission.

What happened in June, 1824, when the dreaded Spotted Faces came and arrested Adoniram? Before his arrest, Adoniram had
been working on the translation of the New Testament into the Burmese language. How did he plan on keeping it safe? Would it eventually be lost? What would have happened if Adoniram had not answered the call and persevered?!

This story is graphic in places but we, personally had no issue with reading it aloud in family devotions. It shows our children and us, the cost that was paid by the early missionaries and can even lead into conversations of what is happening in the persecuted church today. We cannot and should not sugar coat the cost of being a Christian. Persecution is real!

An excellent, well-written book that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
