An Outstanding Christian Biography Jan 7, 2009
This book is the best biography I've ever read, and possibly one of the best books I've ever read. S. Pearce Carey (William Carey's great-grandson, a preacher himself) is an excellent writer and did extensive research to bring the full details about the life of William Carey.
This book is an amazing testament to the faithfulness of God in missions as he sustained and prospered the work of Carey and others in Calcutta. I was brought to tears on more than one occasion while reading about the tragedy and triumph of the missions work in India.
A must-read for all Christians.

This book though written in a style not popular these days it is still the most comprehensive and informative biuography on the life of a great missionary pioneer.
