Item description for Adoniram Judson: Bound for Burma (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) by Janet Benge, Geoff Benge & Nyp...
Overview 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Adoniram Judson: Bound for Burma (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)?
Yay for this book! Aug 25, 2008
This book is written in a way that older children could read it, but so could an older person, and both would enjoy it.
Caution for younger readers! Oct 21, 2007
We like the other books we've read in this series, but many of the themes this particular book (Judson) were really too "old" for our nine-year-old and we chose not to finish the book. The graphic violence and sometimes disturbing theological themes may not be appropriate for younger readers. I would certainly not recommend this book as a read "alone". I would highly suggest a parental "read along" so that you can address any disturbing or controversial issues.
A major perspective... Nov 16, 2005
This book casts a long shadow-historically speaking. Adoniram's work is the only translated Bible in the Burmese language today. His life was an amazing adventure filled with the pain of loss and the victory of seeing the Holy spirit open doors. You will do yourself a favor to read this book. I loved it.
