Reviews - What do customers think about Bless God and Take Courage: The Judson History And Legacy?
courage and adventure Jul 12, 2005
This well-written book tells the story of Adoniram Judson and his experience as a missionary to Burma (now Myanmar) in the early 19th century. One doesn't have to be especially interested in missions to appreciate this adventure story of a courageous pioneer and his wives who were important in their own right.
The indomitable courage of Judson and his first wife, Ann, infuses the first third of the book. The obstacles they faced, including a long imprisonment, were daunting and vividly told.
Rosalie Hunt served as a missionary in eight Asian countries and spent six years researching the Judson legacy.
Hard to put down Jul 12, 2005
Unlike many biographies there is nothing dry and uninteresting about this story of Adoniram Judson's missionary work and his family. It has everything a reader could want: romance, tragedy, adventure, sorrow, suffering and triumph.This is not to mention the golden thread of Christian love and godliness that runs throughout. And it is all true! I highly recommend it to one and all.
Good Story! Jul 10, 2005
Adoniram Judson's biography is a winner! Ann and Adoniram Judson, America's first overseas missionaries, endured every kind of trouble, yet Ann's motto, "Let us bless God and take courage" kept their spirits high. This true story is full of adventure and romance. The name Adoniram Judson is still revered by Christians in Burma as well as the rest of the population thanks to the prodigious works by Adoniram and his three wives-- Ann, Sarah, and Emily. A thoroughly good read!
Splendid Book Jul 9, 2005
What a great story! I expected a regular biography/history of Adoniram Judson, but found myself caught up in an adventure like no other. Author Rosalie Hunt did herself proud in this gripping account of America's first missionary and his three wives, all of whom were perfectly suited for Judson as well as the tasks ahead. Bless God and Take Courage is one of the best books I have ever read and I am looking forward to Hunt's next book.
A Must Read! Jul 7, 2005
The new tome from Rosalie Hunt on the life and legacy of Adoniram Jusdson, his missionary service and the impact of his family on Burma is an opportunity to travel back in time...in person. Because Mrs. Hunt has liberally utilized the personal journals and mission records of the Judson family, nothing is left out. I celebrated births into the Judson family and cried at funerals for those same family members. To be brought that close to a family through a book is a rare feat indeed. Mrs. Hunt has accomplished just that. If you have any interest in the beginnings of the American missionary movement, or want to walk alongside an incredible man and his family as they courageously follow God through difficult times of trials and triumphs, this book is a must read.
