With the advent of 2012 comes recognition of the bicentennial of Judsons departure and official start of the American missionary enterprise. This volume seeks to honor the life and mission of Judson while retelling his story for a new generation. With the occasion of the 200-year anniversary of Judsons departure as a fitting context for such a presentation, the his- torians, theologians, and missiologists writing here under the guidance of editor Jason G. Duesing have endeavored not only to serve as Judsons biographers of past events, but also as his interpreters of what they hope will take place in the present and future.
Contributors include Paige Patterson, Michael A. G. Haykin, Robert Caldwell, Nathan A. Finn, Candi Finch, Keith E. Eitel, Gregory A. Wills, and Daniel L. Akin.

This bicentennial appreciation of Judson's historic journey to India--and eventually to Burma, today's Myanmar, is a treasure for the church, church historians, and missionaries. (His journey) led to the rise of Christianity in Burma, a land where Christian faith is difficult and sometimes even dangerous. Judson's bold witness and careful work on the Burmese Bible remain an inspiration today.

Coming to you on the bicentennial of Judson's remarkable ministry, this book is not meant to merely inform but to inspire.

More than the story of a missionary, this work is a confrontation with mediocre Christianity, a clashing of the 21st Century American church with the sacrificial living of its forbears. It is the story of a real man with real problems, real struggles, and a real great commission drivenness. Read it. Be challenged. Hear the cry of nations that to this day remain in darkness.
