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.

Explore the life of America's first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson (1788-1850), who was devoted to serving for over 38 years in Burma, no matter the cost. The son of a congregational minister, Judson was a precocious young man who aspired to gain exceptional worldly fame through some prominent secular career. But following a crisis of faith and a stunning turn of events that exposed the vanity of mere temporal pursuits, he went on to study for the Christian ministry and to dedicate his life to missionary service. With unshakable faith in God and His Word, Judson persevered through staggering difficulties. His unremitting labor and devotion were used of the Lord to spread the Gospel and to establish healthy Christian congregations throughout Burma. Judson's example was an inspiration to untold thousands in his own day and still has the power to encourage and instruct believers today.

Adoniram Judson's life was first made famous by Courtney Anderson in the riveting classic biography To The Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson. 2012 is the bicentennial of Judson's departure from Salem, Massachusetts to bring the gospel to the far-east. Along the way, Judson made definitive contributions to biblical translation, missiology, and cultural engagement. His departure, widely considered to be the 'birth of American overseas missions', began a movement that spread across the globe and transformed societies from east to west.

It is with this historical context in mind and its celebration in 2012 that Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary now appears. A book of essays written by historians, biblical scholars, theologians, missiologists, and church leaders, this volume honors the life and mission of Judson while retelling his enthralling story for a new generation.
