Adoniram Judson :A Biography By his son, Edward Judson.

Posted: April 16, 2012 in Biography

Adoniram Judson; A Biography By his son Edward Judson“Brothers, Read Christian Biography – Hebrews 11 is a divine mandate to read Christian biography. The unmistakable implication of the chapter is that, if we hear about the faith of our forefathers (and mothers), we will “lay aside every weight and sin” and “run with perseverance the race that is set before us” (12:1). If we asked the author, “How shall we stir one another up to love and good works?” (10:24), his answer would be: “Through encouragement from the living (10:25) and the dead” (chap. 11). Christian biography is the means by which “body life” cuts across the generations.” – John Piper.

“IT is my purpose in the following pages to present a clear and consecutive story of my father’s life, which may be justly said to form the main artery of the American Foreign Missionary Enterprise.”Edward Judson.

Adoniram Judson – Apostle of the Love of Christ in Burma.
As a student at Andover Seminary, Judson heard and read of the work that William Carey and his associates were opening up in India. This influenced him to give serious consideration to the question of foreign missions. His first conclusion was that surely the love of Christ, which had so marvelously banished the darkness from his own soul, was meant for all mankind.

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.
