Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ: The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton
The stories of these three faithful men are not just inspiring, but model to us a courage, steadfastness, and willingness to endure suffering that all of them could have gotten out of. But their focus on Christ and His worthiness kept each of them able to withstand the trials, losses, and hardships that came with their service to the Lord Jesus. Piper does a wonderful job of condensing these giants of the faith so we get to glean critical lessons from their costly lives.
To the Golden Shore
Let Anderson transport you to a world of New England Christianity, life in India, and the hardships in pioneering missionary work in Burma, that is now long gone. Anderson tells a story of intense focus, setback after setback, and courage that continues to make you shake your head all throughout this book. Anderson does not write to shock, his ‘just the facts’ style is not meant to play on your emotions, but this well-researched story on the life of Adoniram Judson will keep you spellbound, challenge your own faith and remind us how far we have slipped from such hold-back-nothing commitment to our Lord Jesus.
