In this biography, Sharon James uses the sources carefully to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson's piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention. She does this not to venerate them, but to challenge us to deeper commitment and service to the Lord. If you're going through trials or suffering, this book will remind you that trials are always for a purpose - rightly understood they glorify God and build us up in the faith.
"For those who love rich and instructive historical narrative, deep and sacrificial Christian commitment, genuine and heart-felt devotion to Christ, and bold and daring service for the sake of the spread of the gospel - one can hardly find a story more amazing than one will read in Sharon James's excellent depiction of the life and times of Ann Judson..."? - Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"In a venerable line of biographies of Ann Judson, this fresh re-telling of Ann's story provides a marvellous biographical resource."? - Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
