Item description for To The Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson by Courtney Anderson...
Overview On February 12, 1812, Ann and Adoniram Judson sailed from Salem aboard the big Caravan as two of the first missionaries to go out from North America. Watching the shoreline disappear from view, they could not have foreseen the impact of their journey on the future of the Christian world mission or on the thousands of men and women who would follow in their footsteps. After a short stay in India, they carried the Good News of Jesus Christ to the golden shore of Burma. Drawing on letters and church records, Courtney Anderson paints a poignant portrait of Judson's early life in dealing with the conflict between his desire for material success and the inner call to serve God. For Adoniram Judson "the golden shore" brought bitter hard-ships, imprisonment, and family tragedy. Yet, he never wavered in his commitment to win people to faith in Christ and to translate the Bible into the Burmese language. This special edition recognizes the 175th anniversary of the Judsons' sailing on their historic voyage and celebrates the early years of Baptist missions overseas. Photographs and reproductions of Burmese woodcuts are used in telling Judson's story,

"Must-Read" for all Christians Jan 2, 2008
To the Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson While the mentions any Bible verses only twice; one in the preface and the other at the contents, this book is far better biblical mission biography ever written. Professional touch of great depiction of the land which we most of us never seen before. Burma becomes so vividly alive before the reader's eye; even though many times letters had to swim across my eyes, if you know what I mean. At the first part you might feel a little overwhelmed to see this thick and tiny lettered copy but with all the certain assurance at last when you get to the last chapter, "to the Golden Shore" you will desperately wish if there were few hundreds more. --jason.

To the Golden Shore is one of the most profound books I've ever read. The depth of dedication shown by Adoniram Judson and his family over the years of his ministry leaves me without words. It will break your heart and inspire you to make better use of your time on earth.
Every Christian should read this book.
