Yet in the 18th century, he converted hundreds of Native Americans thorugh his example of self-denial, commitment to prayer, and devotion to Christ. Edited by Jonathan Edwards, Brainerd's firsthand account chronicles his amazing ministry-one that continues to shape today's missions.

This compilation, taken from Jonathan Edward's edited versions of David Brainerd's "Diary" and "Journal," offers a highly readable record of the life and labors of David Brainerd as he presented the gospel to Native Americans in the face of many obstacles, both the external challenges of life in what was still the frontier of 18th century America, and internal battles as he persevered through bouts of depression during his short but fruitful life.
