Earnestly consider your role in completing the Great Commission.

That was John Piper's overarching plea when he delivered a biographical message on Adoniram Judson in 2003.

Judson was America's first foreign missionary and an example of one who considered, and executed on, his own uniquely strategic role in the completing of the Commission.

Inspiring short read. Free Ebook at Desiring God.
John Barbour
THE HEART OF THIS BOOK IS THIS: God plans to make suffering a crucial means to
accomplish his purpose.AND The pain of Adoniram Judson illustrates the purpose
of suffering.
Quotable quote:
"I don’t just mean that suffering is the consequence of obedient
missions. I mean that suffering is one of Christ’s strategies
for the success of his mission."
Daniel Duane
A rather brief biography of Adoniram Judson. Piper stressed more on the suffering he went through, which was very very immense. So many of his loved ones died, it was really unbelievable that a man could live through those experiences except by the Grace of God. Liked the way Piper put it by putting five points on the table for anyone who seeks to be part of the Great Commission. One point was clear, suffering is a prerequisite for to see the fruits of labor and the glory of God come.
Giju Abraham
A short and quick read on the amazing life of Adoniram Judson. You will be shocked and inspired by what he and his family endured for missions. Even though he had moments of doubt and despair he never really gave up. A great example to many.

Thanks to John Piper and Desiring God for making resources such as these available free to download and print!
wow i would very much like to read an expanded biography of judson, his wives and life in burma. i always wondered what people meant with the phrase "die hard". know i know. wow. praise God for this man's life of service for the Gospel of Christ.
This small book made me pray more and meditate of the preciosness of Great Commission, the ways how God ordains his gospel to be spread; and finally estimate myself in the context of His work.
Excellent short biography on one of the most heroic figures of Christianity one can name
Awesome read, very inspiring. This man gave his life for Christ, convicting testimony.
Richard Moore
Awesome read very inspiring. What can we sacrifice for Christ like Judson did.
