Product Description

On February 19, 1812, Ann and Adoniram Judson sailed from Salem aboard the brig "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.

    To the Golden Shore is a biography by Courtney Anderson on Adoniram Judson, a Congregationalist (later converts to Baptist) missionary with a call to preach and live God's word among the natives of Burma, a cruel and arrogant people. Through the book one will read of Adoniram's trials, hopes, and dreams in not only missionary work, but also marriage and fatherhood.

    I do so very much like the layout of the book as, unlike many other biographies, when telling the story of Adoniram, Anderson (the author) does not jump from one year to three years later without telling you. He starts with telling the reader a little of Adoniram's father, Adoniram Judson Senior's, history and then changes into Adoniram's history so smoothly one hardly notices this sudden change. The overall book flows nicely and is very coherent while holding my attention. I also appreciate the kindness of Anderson in taking a few unscholarly liberties with paragraphing and spelling in order to make it easier to read for the common individual and offering less interruption to the story.

    And I do so like how Anderson describes not only places and smells as if you where there, but also over time, people. Their personalities as if you already knew them and what to expect them to say next.

    The book is a very good one and I would recommend it to any Christian.

    I was compelled to read the biography of Adoniram Judson after hearing a John Piper message in which he challenged his hearers to count the cost in embracing a call to missions. Anderson's book is lengthy but easy read which draws the reader into a life of sacrifice and service not unlike that of the Apostle Paul. Judson experienced many "personal deaths" and severe tests of faith in order to reach the Burmese people with the Gospel. One cannot help but wonder how weaker men--particularly in our day--would have abandoned the cause in the face of so many difficult circumstances. Loss of loved ones, imprisonment, loneliness and solitude, near loss of faith, and years without a convert, Judson persevered by God's grace to make a lasting impact as America's first foreign missionary. Recommended for those considering a call to missions and those who need encouragemenbt to stay the course.

    This book left such an impression that we ordered books for our adult Bible class.

    Not only for missionaries, this book is for everyone who loves the gospel! Well written, engaging, and inspiring. You will follow Adoniram through his brilliant childhood, through his years of agnosticism, through his conversion and call to ministry, through his trip to Burma, through tradgedy, suffering, and repentance. Through his three amazing wives (it is worth reading it just to hear about them!), and to his eventual death. This is a story that should not die, not in our generation or the next.

    I read this book years ago, as a very young Christian, and it has defined a good bit of my life. It is pure and simply a classic, probably one of the most outstanding Christian biographies ever written.
